Hyderabad: Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) has been ranked one of the 100 best airports in the world. According to the airport rankings by Skytrax, a UK-based airport review and ranking site, RGIA has been ranked 63rd. In 2021, it had secured the 64th position.

Hyderabad is also the third best airport in South Asia after Delhi and Bangalore. Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport secured the 37th rank and Bangalore's Kempegowda International Airport was listed 61st. In 2021, Delhi was ranked 45th and Bangalore 71st.

The highlight of the award is that it is given away based on customers' voting.

Hamad International airport in Doha, Qatar has been ranked the world's best airport in 2022 followed by Tokyo's Haneda airport bagging second place, and Changi airport in Singapore has been ranked third. Interestingly, in 2021, these three airports had grabbed the first three positions.

The World Airport Awards was started in 1999 when Skytrax launched its first global airport customer satisfaction survey. They are regarded as a quality benchmark for the world airport industry, assessing customer service and facilities across over 500 airports. The survey and awards are fully managed and funded by Skytrax.

Edward Plaisted of Skytrax congratulated the management, staff, and stakeholders of the Hamad International airport who have contributed to this achievement for the second consecutive year.

"Whilst airports worldwide continued to be impacted by the pandemic throughout 2021, Hamad International Airport served 17.1 million passengers in 2021 and continued with its expansion plans," he said.

Further, he said that with air travel quickly picking up post-pandemic, the challenge for all airports is now to deliver the highest standards to customers with increased travel expectations.
