New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport is India's best but ranks 59th globally
Airports in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru also featured in the list of world's best airports
Singapore's Changi Airport has been crowned the world's best aviation hub for the seventh time in a row, while New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport featured at number 59, according to the Skytrax World Airport Awards.
The list has been compiled by the UK-based Skytrax, a consultancy firm which runs an airline and airport review and ranking site, featuring 100 airports, CNN reported.
The prestigious accolade was awarded at the Passenger Terminal Expo 2019 in London on Wednesday. The Skytrax World Airport Awards are voted for by customers in a global airport customer satisfaction survey.
"To be voted the World's Best Airport for the seventh consecutive year is a truly fabulous achievement for Changi Airport, and this award continues to underline the airport's popularity with international air travellers," Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax said.
Breaching the top three is Incheon International Airport, down one place from its second-place spot in 2018. Incheon remains a stalwart of the airport rankings, also nabbing an award for World's Best Transit Airport.
The other Indian airports in the list were Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport at 64, down one point from the previous year, the Rajiv Gandhi Hyderabad International Airport at 66, up 10 points and Bengaluru's Kempegowda International Airport at 69, down five points.
