Singapore Changi has emerged as the world’s favourite airport, while Hong Kong is not far behind.

This is according to a survey of more than 14,500 frequent fliers by Priority Pass, with it being the second year in succession that these airports have occupied the top spots

Jonathan French, head of brand at Priority Pass, said the people taking part in the poll "know a thing or two about airports" because they have taken nearly 250,000 flights between them over the past year.

"Opinions about both Changi and Chek Lap Kok are almost universally good throughout the world and this accolade is well deserved," he commented.

Amsterdam Schipol came in third place, making it the favourite airport in Europe, while Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Seoul Incheon made an appearance in the top ten.

By contrast, London Heathrow, Britain’s largest and busiest airport, was voted the world’s worst airport for the second year in a row.

In 2007, Singapore Changi was the 19th busiest airport in the world and the fifth busiest in Asia.
