Well, well, well. In our head it seemed like a very busy airport related news week, however some news just kept re-appearing. Plus we’ve travelled ourselves, from Asia back to Australia, this week too. Both of those things initially clouded our judgement, we guess. It’s actually been a fairly quiet week.

It was this time of the year again when the World’s Best Airports are named at the annual Skytrax World Airport Awards. Last Year Hong Kong won the trophy, this year it was South Korea’s Incheon International Airport (IATA: ICN). It’s boring as the overall winner always seems to be either Hong Kong (HKG), Singapore (SIN) or, well, Incheon. At least this was true over the past years.
