South Korean airport named World's best
June 16 2009
Incheon International Airport in North Korea has been named the World’s Best Airport for 2009 in the World Airport Survey.
The airport, which features a transportation interchange designed by Farrells, also won the Easiest International Transport Award.
Incheon International Airport was designed to cater for a projected 50 million passengers a year. The passenger interchange features a great hall with a glazed concourse roof that provides large, naturally-lit spaces that are visible from all arrival points.
“Incheon is an airport that has been in the global top five ranking for the World Airport Awards during the last 5-6 years, and it is a great achievement for them to secure this premier mark of customer satisfaction," said Edward Plaisted, Chief Executive of Skytrax, the organisers of the World Airport Survey.
"It is very clear from the 2009 survey results that Incheon International is setting the current global quality benchmark.”
Sir Terry Farrell said he was delighted and proud that we have won the award.
"Incheon continues to perform extremely well and this year’s awards are a testimony to that. At Farrells we have continued to develop an impressive range of infrastructure projects around the world. It is wonderful to have that work recognised by building users,” he added.
