For the sixth time in seven years, Fairmont Vancouver Airport has been awarded Best Airport Hotel in North America at the 2017 World Airport Awards, which were held March 14, 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
With more than 5,000 visitors attending the first day alone - including CEOs, architects, airport and airline executives, suppliers and key decision makers from across the world - Passenger Terminal Expo provided the ideal setting for the prestigious award announcements. It is the largest, annual global airport customer satisfaction survey.
The World Airport Awards are based on 12.85mn customer nominations across 110 nationalities of air travellers, and include 410 airports worldwide.
The Skytrax World Airport Awards recognized YVR for its excellence yet again this year.
Cincinnati finished as the highest-ranked USA airport among the world's top 100 overall airport rankings, finishing 26th.
The Skytrax awards mark the fifth global passenger-driven award received by Billy Bishop Airport this month.
He also added that as the airport expands its facilities to serve more passengers in the years ahead, the team will continue to work closely with airport partners to further enhance the Changi experience.
For the fifth year in a row, Singapore's Changi Airport grabbed the top spot - and it's not too surprising considering what's inside. While Changi came first, the other leading nine challengers in the Top 10 ranking were as follows: 2: Tokyo International Airport Haneda; 3: Incheon International Airport; 4: Munich Airport; 5: Hong Kong International Airport; 6: Hamad International Airport; 7: Central Japan International Airport; 8: Zurich Airport; 9: London Heathrow Airport; and 10: Frankfurt Airport.
YVR has broken a record with its historic win of being the Best Airport in North America for eight consecutive years.
At this point, travelers might be wondering if there will ever be an airport that can surpass much-lauded Changi. This achievement demonstrates the airport's constant endeavor to improve the experience of transiting passengers by high setting standards of customer service.
