Dubai International Airport has been voted the World’s Best Airport for Layovers for the second year running at an awards ceremony held in the city by the Middle East edition of Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
The award was voted for by the magazine’s readers, who fill out a survey online, with the results announced at a black tie ceremony.
Dubai was the top choice among the three final nominees chosen in the category, joined by Doha’s Hamad International Airport and Singapore’s Changi International Airport. Representatives from Dubai Airports attended the event to collect the award.
A wide range of food and beverage options, shops, airside hotels, and unique relaxation concepts such as spa treatments and sleeping pods, all contributed to the airport’s success.
Anita Mehra, senior vice president, communication and reputation, said, “We work very hard together to ensure the comfort and happiness of our customers. The airport had a great start to the year with the opening of the US$1.2bn Concourse D, which not only elevated the experience but provided timely capacity for our growing traffic.
“We delighted our customers with live performances from international artists through the #musicDXB campaign, and ensured travelers had a smooth and fun start to their holidays during our busiest summer in history through the Hangout@DXB campaign.”
