THE WORLD’S BEST AIRPORT: 2018 SKYTRAX RANKING

We will close the year 2018 with the official ranking of the world’s
best airports. Each year the British society Skytrax, that operates in
the field of civil Aviation, compiles special rankings dedicated to the airline
companies and airports, that help travelers find the best services for their
needs. Even though the ranking regards only commercial
aircrafts
and low cost airline companies, without taking into specific consideration
the charter planes companies, we think that
this data could also be significant in the world of charter
private planes
and could be also interesting for all of the incentive trip agencies, convention
organizations
, MICE, DMC, etc. 

Skytrax is also one of the most well-known organizations of the field
for its annual awards of prestigious recognitions of the different flight companies,
among them the World Airline Awards. The study was
made with the data gathered from the travelers from all the world during the World
Airport Survey 2017-2018
and the winner, for the sixth
consecutive year, was the Singapore airport of Changi. We from That Aviation
Italia had the pleasure to transit through this airport and we assure you that
it is really a rare pearl of an airport. The well-deserved first place!
