As a result of a research conducted with the participation of more than 40 thousand passengers from more than 40 countries, the best airport in the world was determined. Only Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport made it to the list from Turkey. Considering that Turkey is one of the countries that attract the most tourists in the world, this situation is quite thought-provoking.
At the top of the list of 133 airports, Qatar’s Hamad Airport was ranked with 8.39 points out of 10. Japan’s Haneda Airport is in second place, again with 8.39 points. Greece’s Athens Airport is in third place with 8.38 points. Sabiha Gökçen International Airport was only able to take the 29th place with 7,93 points.
60% of the score is based on the timely departure rates of the flights, 20% on the quality of the shuttle service provided at the airports, and 20% on the food areas and shopping points. Sabiha Gökçen International Airport was awarded 7.8 points for on-time departure, 8.3 points for service quality and 8.1 points for dining areas.
Istanbul Airport could not receive a significant evaluation since it has just been put into service. However, Heathrow Airport in London, John F. Kennedy Airport in New York and Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris were behind Sabiha Gökçen International Airport in the list.
