Barajas and El Prat gain popularity

Singapore, Brisbane (Australia) and Zurich (Switzerland) lead the ranking of the best airports in the world, according to the study ‘Best Airports’ published by the eDreams travel agency for the eighth consecutive year in which it analyzes the opinion of more than 80,000 Travellers.

As reported by the company in a press release, travelers have valued their experience in transit at the airports they have visited, taking into account aspects such as general services, the comfort of the waiting rooms and the variety of the shopping area and restoration.

This way the travelers have awarded the first position of the ranking to the International Airport of Singapore, with 4.43 points out of five; followed by the Australian airport of Brisbane, with 4.25 points; and the Swiss from Zurich, with 4.19 points.

For the director of eDreams in Spain, Javier Bellido, this type of reports allows “to better know the changing needs of travelers around the world.” In the same line, he has maintained that it serves to “provide useful information to the terminals, which can adapt their services to the preferences of their customers”.

With regard to 2017, only four of the ten selected aerodromes among the travelers (Singapore, Zurich, Munich and Atatürk – Istanbul, Turkey -) have remained in the top positions, in a ranking that confirms the dominance of European aerodromes, occupying Zurich, Munich-Franz Josef Strauss, Atatürk, Stockholm-Arlanda, London-Heathrow and Hamburg six of the top ten in the global ranking.


Although none of the Spanish airports appear in the global ‘top ten’, travelers such as the Italians, French, Portuguese and Americans place Madrid-Barajas and Barcelona-El Prat among the top ten.

On the other hand, for Spanish travelers participating in the study, the best airport is Madrid, with 3.99 points out of five; followed by El Prat (3.88 points) and Rome-Fiumicino Airport (3.73 points).
