If you’ve travelled to different airports around the world, you’ll know that they vary a great deal. Sometimes the airports are just as interesting as the cities that they’re in!
As a limousine hire company that provides luxury airport hire services to Sydney Airport and Newcastle Airport, High Class Limousines understands the important role that transportation facilities play in making an airport a good one.
Fortunately for us, Sydney Airport is among the best in the world, thanks to its winning combination of airport design and variety of facilities. Sydney Airport has all the facilities that one might need, including relaxation areas where you can book a massage and quiet prayer spaces for those in need of contemplation.
There are shops galore for travellers looking to pick up an item or three, including several shops that specialise in Australian made goods. It’s the perfect place to pick up that pack of Tim Tams that you forgot to buy for those people you’re visiting overseas!
Are you wondering which other airports make the list of the world’s best? Here are some of the characteristics of an airport that wants to take its place among the best in the world:
- Is there adequate parking space and is it easy to access?
- Are there enough facilities, from shopping to overnight accommodation, to suit all needs?
- Is there free Wi-Fi and is it well signposted inside the terminals?
- Does the airport fly to all major international destinations and does it have a domestic terminal for internal flights?
- Does it provide efficient service and is it clean and comfortable?
Besides Sydney Airport, here are 4 other popular airports that answered yes to all of those questions:
- Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia
- Hong Kong International Airport, Hong Kong
- Vancouver International Airport, Canada
- Munich International Airport, Germany
Kuala Lumpur International Airport
Visitors to the airport are often amazed at the indoor rainforest walk, complete with a boardwalk that makes for a pleasant change after sitting in a plane on a long haul flight. The main terminal is kept clean and welcoming, and there are a number of shopping options and food outlets to suit a range of palates.
Hong Kong International Airport
This incredibly busy airport boasts a swimming pool, spas, showers and gardens, all housed within a bright and airy space. It is even home to an IMAX theatre, where you can watch a variety of films screened during the day. There are 24-hour restaurants and food outlets, and everywhere is kept spotlessly clean.
Vancouver International Airport
For a friendly welcome in a well-designed and well-planned out terminal building, Vancouver is hard to beat.
