HONG KONG VOTED BEST AIRPORT 2001

Apr 24, 2001

Hong Kong International Airport has been named the world's best airport for 2001, the airport authorities said yesterday.

"It is extremely gratifying to be honored in such a way in less than three years after airport opening. Given the very high standards of the other airports, we are very happy indeed," David Pang, chief executive officer of the Airport Authority, said in a statement.

Hong Kong International Airport emerged as the winner in a survey conducted on 412,000 passengers by the UK-based airline and air-travel industry research company Skytrax.

Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur International Airport was voted second best in the survey, followed by Singapore's Changi Airport.

Passengers were asked to rate airports for ease of use, signage, accessibility, ease of transfer, passenger facilities and terminal comfort.

Helsinki's Vantaa airport was named the best airport in Europe, followed by Amsterdam's Schiphol and Copenhagen.

Dubai's new airport moved straight into top spot for the Middle East category.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT?

KLIA is awesome, especially the trains that take you to/from the satellite boarding terminal. A true work of art. I would put KLIA above Hong Kong, but then again KLIA doesn't get the same volume of traffic as Kong Kong.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I havent been to Hong Kong but it seems to be a nice airport from what I have heard. Great to see it scoop up the prize. If I remember correctly Copenhagen airport won the prize last year  Big grin
