Commenting on this latest victory, Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group said: "Winning the Skytrax World's Best Airport Award for the fifth consecutive year is enormous encouragement to our 50,000-strong airport community at Changi Airport, every one of whom is passionate about delivering the most memorable airport experience to our passengers".

The airport also ranked as the 13th best airport in the world, according to a list of winners that were announced March 14 at an event in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

"Winning the Skytrax World's Best Airport Award for the fifth consecutive year is huge encouragement to our 50,000-strong airport community at Changi Airport, every one of whom is passionate about delivering the most memorable airport experience to our passengers", said Lee Seow Hiang, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Changi Airport Group.

The IGIA had recently achieved the world's second position in the highest category - over 40 million passengers per annum - of Airport Service Quality Awards 2016, the statement added. Within the World's Cleanest Airports category, Asian airports accounted for 8 of the top 10 contenders interrupted only by Zurich and Doha.

In addition to ranking the best airports, the Skytrax survey also built out a list of top airports based on other factors such as the cleanest and the most improved.

Such planes are popular with budget airlines that comprise a key market for both aircraft manufacturers. Certification of the MAX 8 comes two days after the next re-engined 737 variant, the MAX 9, rolled out.

"We share this honour with the Changi Airport community and the many government agencies whom we work closely with".

This accolade is an acknowledgement of CSIA's continuous efforts towards setting quality benchmarks for the airport industry across the globe.

The Singapore global airport clinched the top spot this year ahead of Tokyo's Haneda airport, South Korea's Incheon worldwide Airport, the Munich Airport in Germany and the Hong Kong global Airport.

It was Singapore's Changi Airport, however, that won the big prize of the night as the best airport in the world for the fifth year in a row.

"For an airport that is less than three years old, this is truly a great achievement and underlines the excellent service and facilities that HIA provides to customers, Plaisted said".
