Skytrax rankings: Munich Airport is number one in Europe and number four in the world
by Finanzplatz München Initiative
Based in London, Skytrax is a market research organization that has devoted itself to the aerospace industry. Each year, it polls the world's air travelers to determine which are regarded as being the world's best airports. The travelers use 40 criteria – ranging from check-in times to cleanliness of toilets – to compile their rankings.
This year, 9.8 million air travelers were polled. Their verdict: capping its first place finishes in 2005-2008, Munich is Europe's best airport – and one of the top five in the world, trailing only Singapore, Seoul and Hong Kong.
