Glazing terminals today are seen as reflective of the lifestyle that the cities have to offer. No wonder that ranking among the best international airports in the world is a matter of great significance.

Here is a list of the top five airports in the world in 2019, so you know what to expect in your future travels.

  1. Singapore Changi Airport

Singapore Changi Airport

The Singapore Changi international airport has been ranked as ‘The Best Airport in the World’ by Skytrax for 2019. No other airport holds the distinction of bagging this title seven times in a row. This is not surprising given the airport’s world-class amenities. For instance, its concept of Fast and Seamless Travel (FAST) allows do-it-yourself check-ins, baggage tagging and boarding. It also has booths that provide video instructions on getting your formalities done in no time. No layover seems too long here, thanks to the world’s best options for shopping, dining and entertainment.

  1. Tokyo Haneda Airport

Tokyo Haneda Airport

Built in 1931, the Tokyo Haneda International Airport is closer to the city center than the other airport, Narito Airport. While it was exclusively devoted to domestic air traffic since 1978, the completion of the new runway in 2010 re-opened it for international flights. The Haneda Airport handles close to 60 million passengers a year and is among the world’s five busiest airports.  Transit passengers between the domestic and international terminals can use the free shuttle buses, Keikyu Railway or monorail for transportation.

  1. Incheon International Airport

Incheon International Airport

The Incheon International Airport in Seoul is the largest airport in South Korea. It replaced the older Gimpo International Airport in 2001. The airport boasts free hospitality service, indoor gardens and a 72-hole golf course. If you happen to visit just for a layover, you can visit its cultural museum to get a true blue Korean feel without actually stepping out. This apart, you may also consider a massage at the spa, gambling at the casino, or going to the movies.

  1. Hamad International Airport

Hamad International Airport

The Hamad International Airport located in Doha, Qatar is arguably the most luxurious airport on this list. In fact, you’d want to maximize the time you spend here, just to take in all the glam that the airport has to offer. Even its common sitting area is done up in plush Italian-style chrome and leather. Be it the exquisite pieces of art, posh boutiques or exquisite lounges – everything is at its finest at this top airport of the world.

  1. Hong Kong International Airport

Hong Kong International Airport

Also called the Chek Lap Kok Airport, the Hong Kong International Airport is located off Lantau Island in the west of Hong Kong. With a plethora of options to explore, it has been named the best international airport in the world eight times in the past by Skytrax. If you are looking to unwind after a long flight, you can head to the Plaza Premium Lounge for private resting rooms, hot showers and massage services. Or you could lose yourself in the fascinating Aviation Discovery Centre. A taste of traditional Cantonese fare at one of the many great restaurants is also highly recommended.

As evident from the aforementioned list, Asia is fast emerging as the ideal to look up to in terms of the best international airports. So perhaps it isn’t a bad idea to plan your next trip to an Asian country to experience the best of world-class hospitality and entertainment at one of the airports itself.
