According to CNN, the award was based on surveys conducted by international travel research and consultancy group Skytrax, who polled 12.1 million passengers over a nine-month period.

The Changi airport offered free city tours to all travelers on a stopover of five hours as well as swimming pool, butterfly garden and cinema.

Changi was also one of the first airports to introduce free WiFi areas and previously scooped the Skytrax best airport award in 2000 before going on to win again in 2006 and 2010.
