What is the best airport in the world 2024? In the last decade, Singapore's Changi International Airport and Doha's Hamad International Airport have competed for the title of 'world's best airport'. It tickles one's fancy to think that they have a match in beauty, but not in airport services.

The best airport in the world 2024?! Each year British Airways and the airport rating page Skytrax asks travelers from all over the world who should be chosen for this prestigious title this year. In 2024, Qatar takes the crown, with an airport known for its ultra-modern design and terminals so easy to navigate that your smartphone could handle them.

Singapore (SIN) held this title in 2023 and 2020, while it Doha (DOH) was the best in 2022 and 2021. Which is practically like passing the ball to the court of the best airports.

"We are extremely honored that passengers have chosen us as the best airport in the world," enthused Qatar Airways Group CEO, Badr Mohammed Al Meer. "We look forward to continuing to delight and surprise passengers by creating unforgettable travel experiences."

DOH, among other things, offers free city tours for passengers with long layovers, which clearly impressed them. They are also home to the Oryx Airport Hotel, where guests can experience the spa, squash or just swim in the 25-meter pool.

At the World Airport Awards, which took place April 17 in Frankfurt, published the results of a survey of travelers from more than 100 countries, collected between August 2023 and March 2024. They were asked about everything from going through security points to the quality of the food and beverage offerings.

While Europe still holds the bar high with nine airports in the top twenty, including Vienna, Madrid and Istanbul, with Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) taking the top spot in sixth place. Paris has invested heavily in infrastructure upgrades ahead of the upcoming Olympics, and it's clearly paid off.

But because it's not all about airports, Skytrax also awards exceptional airport hotels. Retro inspired TWA Hotel at New York JFK Airport was named the best airport hotel in North America.

The world's best airports for 2024 are: Doha Hamad, Singapore Changi, Seoul Incheon, and so on. The list is long and full of surprises, as always. In any case, the world of airports seems to be a pretty exciting place to have a 'prettiest' competition if you like a little humor in your trip!
