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.

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.
