Traveling out of the country anytime soon? Find out if you’ll be landing on one of Skytrax’s Best Airports. The Skytrax World Airport Awards is done annually and is based on millions upon millions of votes worldwide. The votes are collected via passenger surveys, of course.

This year, the list has not changed as much. Singapore’s Changi Airport is still reigning, bagging the Best Airport title for the fourth consecutive year. And they rightly deserve it. Passengers are very pleased with the technological innovations Changi Airport has installed for its travelers.
