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.
