Changi International Airport has been named the world’s best airport for the seventh year running – a history-making achievement. But it’s hardly surprising that travellers leave satisfied with a cactus garden, butterfly park and cinema – who would even bother going on holiday? [Photo: Getty]

Globetrotters take note, the world’s 10 best airports have been unveiled.

The Skytrax 2019 World Airport Awards gave Singapore’s Changi Airport the crown for a history-making seventh year running with more than 5,000 arrivals and departures each week across 80 different airlines.

But the travel destination is famed for being much more than a mere transport pitstop with a butterfly park, cinema, cactus garden and countless art installations on offer – more than enough to ease the pain of pesky delays.

Japan also flexed its muscles in the annual list with Tokyo’s Haneda Airport coming in close second place followed by Seoul’s Incheon and Hong Kong International Airport at number five.

So what about the UK?

Despite having over 40 public airports, London Heathrow was the only travel hub to make the definitive top 10 most probably down to its easy-to-navigate location for quick-fire business meetings and tourist visits.

From Switzerland to Qatar, we’ve rounded up this year’s top 10 airports. How many have you visited?
