UK success in the 2019 Skytrax World Airport Awards (see Award time again for Heathrow in this issue) was not limited to Heathrow, as London City (LCY), for the third year running, was named the world’s best in the category for facilities handling up to 5m passengers a year.
With Tokyo Haneda leading the field for airports with annual throughput of 70m-plus passengers, Gatwick came in at ninth in the category for between 40-50m passengers and Dublin scored eighth in the 30-40m passenger category.
The top three in each category were: 70m-plus passengers: Tokyo Haneda, Hong Kong and Heathrow; 60-70m: Singapore Changi, Seoul Incheon and Frankfurt; 50-60m: Madrid Barajas, Barcelona and San Francisco; 40-50m: Munich, Tokyo Narita, Taiwan Taoyuan; 30-40m: Doha Hamad, Zurich and Copenhagen.
In the 20-30m category, winners were Kansai, Vancouver and Brisbane; 10-20m: Centrair Nagoya, Cape Town and Cologne/Bonn; 5-10m: Durban, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky and Gold Coast; and up to 5m: London City, Quito and Baku.
London City Airport CEO Robert Sinclair said: “Winning the Skytrax award again is testament to our whole team in a year of firsts with record passenger numbers, new airlines, inaugural routes, and continuing our £500m development programme.”
