Most of the topic of conversation on this site is in regards to airports is either about size passenger numbers or plane movement but which airport is the best overall in terms of passenger convenience, quality, offers the best facilities and can link you to destinations all around the world.
Manchester airport has been voted the best British airport for as long as I can
Remember and was voted the best in the world a few years back, this is due to some of the key features at the airport which include;
Train, bus, and couch terminal that offers easy access to the airport.
A sky link that connects all three terminals the train station and a 5 star hotel
Fantastic aviation viewing facities that were also voted to be the best in the UK.
It is also a very modern looking airport with great scenery and architecture.

I went to heathrow to see some of the aircraft that we don't get at Manchester although all I saw was yellow boards that have been placed on the fences to prevent you from doing this for what reason im not sure , do they have aviation viewing facilities at Heathrow.

I don't know about worldwide - most airports I've been through are in the third world (LIM, NBO etc) or famous for being unruly (SYD, MAD).....
But I think in the UK honourable mention goes to STN. One of those airports where you can sort of 'see' where you're going. I've never once had that moment where're you've no idea how much further it really is to your gate and start to panic.....which happens plenty at the likes of LHR!

No airport in the world can beat the architecture of the new Asian airports of HKG, ICN & KUL, soon to joined by BKK. On the other hand, I'm extremely impressed by SIN : despite having a 1980's look, it continues to maintain an extremely high standard of operation, constantly rank among the best airports in the world. Looks ain't everything, but it does give a very good 1st impression : you really should try arriving in KUL, HKG or ICN for the first time .

I've loved every Scandinavian airport I've passed through so far (and I'm also including Iceland in that, although not sure if it officially counts as Scandinavia). The exceptions being Longyearbyen, Norway, which is little more than a hangar with some check-in desks, and Reykjavik, Iceland, which is convenient and relaxed, but not much more to write home about.
On my list so far are CPH, HEL, OSL, TOS, LYR, KEF, REK and AEY and I've found them to be clean, bright, airy, modern, relaxed places. I've yet to experience any of the Swedish airports, but hope to put that right early next year.
