Hamad International Claims World's Best Airport Crown, Changi Remains a Powerhouse

Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Doha, Qatar, has dethroned Singapore's Changi Airport to claim the coveted title of "World's Best Airport" for 2024. This news comes courtesy of the prestigious Skytrax World Airport Awards, which were announced at a ceremony in Frankfurt, Germany. HIA's victory marks its third time at the top, having previously clinched the award in 2021 and 2022. This year's win wasn't just about overall excellence; HIA also secured the title of "World's Best Airport Shopping" for the second consecutive year, solidifying its reputation as a premier destination for luxury retail therapy. Additionally, HIA retained its dominance in the Middle East, nabbing the "Best Airport in the Middle East" award for a remarkable tenth year in a row. 


While Singapore's Changi Airport gracefully conceded the top spot this year, it didn't leave empty-handed. Changi remains a titan in the industry, securing the coveted second-place position.  Furthermore, Changi retained its regional crown as "Best Airport in Asia" and received recognition for its exceptional immigration services, winning the "Best Airport Immigration Service" award. 


The Skytrax World Airport Awards are highly respected within the aviation industry, with the rankings determined by a comprehensive global survey of air travelers.  Passengers are surveyed on their experiences across various touchpoints within an airport, including check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security, immigration, and departure at the gate. This year's survey, conducted between August 2023 and February 2024, captured the evolving needs and expectations of travelers in a post-pandemic world.
