AirHelp, a passenger group start-up, has surveyed 40,000 air passengers to reveal the world’s best and worst airports. While airports in Tokyo and Qatar were among the most highly commended for their services and offerings, European airports appear to fare poorly among those surveyed by the start-up.
Passenger group start-up AirHelp has ranked some of the world’s best and worst airports and when it comes to the latter, it seems that eight of the most disliked are in Europe, reports Yahoo. The company surveyed 40,000 air passengers who were asked to rank their preferred airports according to criteria such as dining and eating options and punctuality.
“Of 132 airports including in the survey Portugal’s Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS) was the worst while the Netherlands’ Eindhoven Airport (EIN) placed 130th, Bucharest (OTP) 129th, Malta International Airport (MLA) 128th, Manchester (MAN) 127th, Paris Orly (ORY) 126th, Porto (OPO) 125th and London Gatwick (LGW) 123rd,” reports the outlet.
Only three European airports – those serving Athens and Gdansk as well as Tenerife North Airport (TFN) – ranked within the top ten of the survey’s results.
The top three spots, according to AirHelp, have been awarded to Qatar’s Hamad International Airport (DOH), Tokyo International Airport (HND) and Athens International Airport (ATH), respectively.
