Doha’s Hamad International Airport (DOH) in Qatar has been named the World’s Best Airport by Skytrax, taking the title from Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN).

DOH was awarded the title at the World Airport Awards, held at Passenger Terminal EXPO in Frankfurt on April 17, 2024.

The winner was chosen based on passenger satisfaction surveys between August 2023 and March 2024. Passengers evaluated key airport services, such as check-in and transfer experiences, immigration clearance, shopping and departures.

This is the third time DOH Airport has been given the title of world’s best by Skytrax, after winning the title in 2021 and 2022. The airport also clinched the title of World’s Best Airport Shopping for the second time in a row and Best Airport in the Middle East for the 10th consecutive year. 

Changi Airport has consistently been voted number one by Skytrax, taking the title of world’s best airport in 2013 to 2020 and again in 2023. For 2024, Changi Airport  placed second in the global ranking, winning awards for the Best Airport in Asia and the World’s Best Airport Immigration Service.

“This is a remarkable achievement for Hamad International Airport, as it celebrates its 10th anniversary of operational excellence, connecting passengers seamlessly from all around the world,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer, Engr. Badr Mohammed Al-Meer, who spearheaded the development and growth of DOH Airport over the past decade, said in a statement.

“It is a testament to the dedication of our team and partners, who have contributed to providing passengers with the finest travel experience,” Al-Meer added.

Other airports that placed high in ranking were Seoul’s Incheon Airport (ICN), who moved up to third place and was also named the World’s Most Family Friendly Airport for 2024.

Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) placed fourth in the global ranking and was also named the World’s Cleanest Airport, the World’s Best Domestic Airport and for delivering the World’s Best Airport PRM & Accessible Facilities.
