Singapore's Changi Airport was voted the World's Best Airport by air travelers at the 2017 World Airport Awards for the fifth consecutive year in a row, Straits Times Online reported on Wednesday.

Changi Airport surpassed Tokyo's Haneda Airport and South Korea's Inchon International Airport. It was also named the Best Airport in Asia and Best Airport for Leisure Amenities, the latter a title it has held since the award category was introduced in 2009.

However, the World's Cleanest Airport title went to Haneda Airport. Singapore is ranked sixth in this sub-category, a drop of two places from 2016.

The 2017 World Airport Awards are based on 13.82 million customer nominations across 105 nationalities of air travelers, with 550 airports worldwide taking part. The survey evaluates customer satisfaction across various key performance indicators for airport service and product � from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and immigration, through to departure at the gate.
