Germany’s Munich Airport has been awarded the ‘Best Airport in Europe’ title at the World Airport Awards for the tenth time in the last 12 years.

The award was received by Munich Airport chief executive officer Dr Michael Kerkloh at Passenger Terminal EXPO 2017, an international trade fair for the airport sector held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The World Airport Awards is announced every year by Skytrax, an aviation research company based in London, UK.

Munich Airport was also named the fourth best airport in the world, while the number one position was retained by Singapore's Changi Airport.

“This prestigious award shows that Munich Airport is also seen as very hospitable and efficient when compared with top international airports."

In order to collect ratings for 550 airports, Skytrax conducted a survey and collected responses from approximately 14 million passengers from 106 countries.

Kerkloh said: “We're delighted that Munich Airport is still among the world's best. This prestigious award shows that Munich Airport is also seen as very hospitable and efficient when compared with top international airports.

“We owe that to the commitment of the entire airport family, who work hard every day to make sure that passengers feel very comfortable at our airport.”

According to Kerkloh, Munich Airport has been awarded the title for friendliness and competence of airport staff, the airport amenities and pleasant atmosphere.
