Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport has been named the world’s most improved airport by Skytrax, a UK-based firm which runs an airline and airport ranking site.
Skytrax on Wednesday revealed the 2016 World Airport Awards, based on the number of votes sent in by travelers in what the company called the largest, annual global airport satisfaction survey.
Noi Bai is named the world’s most improved airport, followed by the new Hamad International Airport in Doha and Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
The Hanoi airport jumped 136 spots from 218th place in 2015 to 82th in the world’s Top 100 Airports.
Singapore’s Changi Airport has been voted by customers as the World’s Best Airport by air travelers for the fourth consecutive year at the Skytrax 2016 World Airport Awards.
The new recognition is a breakthrough for Noi Bai. In 2014, The Guide to Sleeping in Airports listed Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat, two biggest international airports in Vietnam, among the worst in Asia.
