Three SA airports among world’s best

March 29, 2014 — 1 Comment

south_african_airportsThree South African airports have made it into Skytrax’s top 10 list of Domestic airports around the world.

Durban’s King Shaka International Airport was voted third Best Domestic Airport in the world, after Tokyo International Airport Haneda in Japan and Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport in China.

Cape Town International claimed the 6th position on the list, while OR Tambo in Johannesburg came in at number 10.

While all the airports listed in this category serve as international airports, the feedback from domestic travellers is exceptionally good.

Today.com reports that Singapore’s Changi Airport was voted the world’s Best Airport over all for the second year in a row.

World Airport Awards by Skytrax are based on 12.85 million customer nominations and the survey included 410 airports.

Passengers were asked to rate 39 key performance indicators, including check-in, arrivals and transfers.

Changi received a double accolade, as it was also named the best airport for leisure amenities, thanks to Terminal 2’s its spectacular ‘nature trail,’ boasting a cactus, orchid, sunflower and butterfly garden as well as a koi pond. Terminal Three also has Singapore’s tallest indoor slide. Source: News24.com

    Something to shout about … I suspect the same would may be said of the international side – as I travel to/fr Lesotho, I often wish for at least a smile when I go past immigration. Occasionally, there is a courteous, professional a friendly face but, too often you feel that you are an imposition on the immigration’s time. Last week, I greeted the outgoing emigration lady, waited patiently and then thanked her for her service but I am not sure why I bothered because she even made eye contact, let alone speak.
