Try Brazil's Santos Dumont (Rio) or Congonhas in Sao Paulo. They are boxed into a tiny area yet handle an astonishing number of movements with no air bridges, buses or (in the case of Santos) air conditioning.

At HEL, 15-20 minute connections are possible and popular, and people rarely miss their connection. (less than in US hubs). Also, if HEL is your final destination, your baggage will be at baggage claim by the time you get there (about 7 minutes from an International gate, through immigration to baggage claim.) Can't beat that kind of efficiency!

It's got to be Singapore Changi Airport.

Other possibilities I think would include Amsterdam, Cincinnati and the new Hong Kong airport. Also, possibly Denver. Not sure about ATL - the delays there are sometimes ridiculous.

Although not the best, my local airport, SLC, is quite efficient. I love that you can still pull up to the curb and run to your gate and not ride some train, or run 5 miles to the gate. Everything is packed in snugly and we rarely experience delays at the gate or have long lines for the active runways

It's no doubt about it.....Copenhagen Airport is the best airport of the world!!!
Why should it be awarded as the best if it isn't???

London Stansted is very efficient, modern, full of light and shopping facilities and bloody fast in terms of luggage movement and reaching the gate. Oh, and their shuttle train between terminals is cute.

I think that ATL has to be up high on that list. It is very simple, and it seems to do really well with just four runways.

DFW is also relatively efficient. They were the first to institute a monorail system.
Also, NickofAtlanta, DIA is not efficient at all. The only way to get from the Main Terminal to concourses B and C is by a underground train, which has a constant amount of breakdowns and problems.

Sn330-

Where do you get your information regarding the "constant amount of breakdowns and problems" of DIA's trams?

The monorail at DFW blows. I think PIT is pretty efficient.

PBI = West Palm Beach International Airport is a great one. Very new, light, airy, and classy. Genuine art adorn the marble and wood panneled complex. Outside the airport approach is complimented with lakes, palm trees, and lush landscaping. Parking could't be easier also. The short term garage is built above the terminal complex so getting from your car to your gate involves a simple elevator ride. It's a shame Trans World is closing their station, but Southwest and JetBlue are moving in.

As for major airports, I agree, ATL is terrific. Modern and easy to understand coupled with a terrific array of food and shopping choices, IMHO make this southeast gateway first-rate. I've never been delayed through ATL thnakfully, but may parents were stranded for like 7 hours a month ago coming back from PWM to FLL.

How about Singapore Changi?
The immigration is fast and you find your baggage already waiting for you afterwards.
Transfers and transits are easy and fast. Good terminal layout and everything is marked so clearly.
I also like Amsterdam Schiphol.
