And the winner of the best airport worldwide is…
Many airports in the Middle East are great, with great service, accurate timeline, and good food, but this one is top-notch.
Business Traveller Middle East – the region’s leading travel and hospitality magazine – has launched the voting process for the Business Traveller Middle East Awards 2018 in January.
“The awards are a celebration of the UAE’s cream of the crop in the business travel and hospitality sector,” according to the Business Traveller Middle East.
Since January, people have been voting online, and finally, the results have been revealed.
Dubai International Airport is the number 1 airport worldwide.
A well-deserved award
The airport has retained the award for four consecutive years as a result of its premium travel services, including catering, entertainment, and retail, the Emirates News Agency reported.
The airport is in continuous growth, according to the reports issued by the travel facility.
The annual traffic report by Dubai Airports stated that the annual traffic reached 88 million passengers in 2017.
This is up by 5.5%, in comparison to 83 million passengers recorded during 2016.
