Kuala Lumpur also ranked seventh in having the world’s best airport staff, just below Japan’s Kansai International Airport at No 6 and ahead of Tokyo Narita International Airport at No 8.
Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport was No 1 for best airport staff.
Asian airports dominated the top three overall places, with the big winner being Singapore’s Changi Airport which was named World’s Best Airport for the fifth consecutive year, followed by Japan’s Tokyo International Aiport (Haneda) in second place, and South Korea’s Incheon International Airport in third.
This year’s winners are based on survey questionnaires completed by 13.82 million airline customers of 105 different nationalities, between July 2016 and February 2017.This article appeared on The Star newspaper website, which is a member of Asia News Network and a media partner of The Jakarta Post
