The Top 10 Airports Of 2019 List
As we have found out the best airlines of 2019, the time is right for us to find out which airport deserves the most praise.
The ranking is based on a multitude of factors. Cleanliness, food and shopping options, hotels, transportation and other aspects influenced the list. With passenger numbers increasing each year, so does the potential profit of the airports.
Anyhow, some interesting trends have developed in 2019. For example, no United States airport has made it on the list, even though airports such as LAX or Atlanta‘s Hartsfield – Jackson are one of the busiest airports in the world. In the case of ATL, it literally is the busiest airport in the world.
Out of the top 10, 7 airports are located in Asia. The other 3 are in Europe, meaning that if you don’t want the airport experience to ruin your holiday, travel either to Asia or Europe.
