The global airport ranking agency, Skytrax, recently unveiled its 2024 report on the World’s Best Airports. A notable mention in this year’s list is Thailand’s very own Suvarnabhumi International Airport, which has impressively climbed up ten places from the previous year to secure the 58th spot.

The rise in the ranking can be attributed to a number of various improvements and enhancements carried out at the airport. This achievement showcases the continuous efforts made by the airport authorities to enhance passenger experience and meet international standards.

Also earning a commendation in the Skytrax report is Don Mueang International Airport. The airport is celebrated as the tenth best among the world’s leading Low-Cost Airline Terminals. This recognition solidifies the airport’s reputation as a preferred choice for budget-conscious travellers, offering top-notch facilities without compromising on cost efficiency, reported The Pattaya News.

Skytrax’s rankings are based on the satisfaction levels of air travellers worldwide. The agency conducted its comprehensive World Airport Survey from 2023 to 2024, gathering responses from passengers globally. The survey delves into various aspects of the airport experience, including check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security, and immigration, among others.
