The World Airport Awards have four Scandinavian airports on their World’s Top 100 Airports for 2015. Voted for by airline customers around the world during the 9-month survey period, these are the most prestigious accolades for the airport industry, and a global benchmark of airport excellence widely known as the Passengers Choice Awards.
Operating since 1999, the World Airport Survey is held in high esteem for clarity of process and principles of independence. No outside sponsorship, payment or external influence is applied to any part of the Survey, making it a most respected global airport customer study providing the core voting data for the Awards.
The 2015 World Airport Awards are based on 13.02 million survey questionnaires completed by 112 different nationalities of airline customers during the survey period from May 2014 to January 2015. The survey covered 550 airports worldwide. This established, industry survey is Independent and evaluates traveler experiences across different airport service and product key performance indicators – from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and immigration through to departure at the gate.
Copenhagen Airport was ranked no. 16 on the list (up one position from last year).
Copenhagen Airport – Københavns Lufthavn, Kastrup – is the major airport for both Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden.
Oslo Airport no. 49 (up two positions from last year).
Oslo Airport (OSL) is located at Gardermoen, 47 km north of Oslo. OSL is Norway’s largest airport, with direct routes to more than 140 domestic and international destinations, as well as over 80 charter destinations.
Billund Airport, Denmark no. 68 (down six positions from last year).
Billund is small and fairly unassuming little city in Jutland, Denmark, and it might not seem like the most exciting place to visit… but you’ll soon realize that this place was quite literally built for fun! Home to Legoland theme park, Lalandia Billund (a huge water park and amusement park), and the LEGO factory (which opens regularly for tours), Billund is pretty much a kid-heaven, right here on earth.
