Amsterdam Schiphol airport was once again ranked highest in the list of best airports in Europe. It's the second time in a row that Schiphol is named best airport in Europe. In the worldwide rankings, Schiphol was also given high ratings with a top 3 position, which is higher than last year. London's Heathrow came in at number 10.

Travellers rank Schiphol best airport in Europe

Skytrax conducts a yearly poll of travellers, and like last year, voters ranked Amsterdam Schiphol Airport highest in Europe. A total of twelve million travellers from 100 countries were asked which airport is the best in the world. Travellers especially appreciated the airport's 'efficient and organized' transfers and the large amount of shops and cafés.

Maarten de Groof accepted the award of Europe's best airport on behalf of Schiphol at the World Airport Awards in Geneva. It should go without saying the airport's Executive Vice President and CCO was delighted to receive the award: 'This award isn't just recognition for Schiphol, but also for our business partners – KLM especially'.

World's best airport

During the World Airport Awards, the prize for best airport in the world was of course awarded as well. Schiphol also was a contender for this award; it was ranked 4th best airport in the world in 2012, and climbed to the number 3 spot this year. Singapore Changi Airport was the winner this year, with South Korea's Incheon International Airport coming in at a close second. London's Heathrow airport was ranked at number 10.
