“The Skytrax World Airport Award is special for two reasons: First, the recipient is chosen by the people who are the focus of all we do – our passengers,” said Michael Eggenschwiler, chief executive officer at Hamburg Airport. “Here we see that our efforts are rewarded with a high quality of service, from booking to boarding.  

“Second, this award shows that our passengers trust us even during a pandemic. This is something that our whole airport team can be especially proud of. We have invested in numerous hygiene measures over the past 15 months. The strong commitment of our staff made this fantastic result possible. I am proud of such a motivated workforce, especially in these difficult times.” 

In the worlds top 100 airports for 2021, Hamburg came within the top 30 by achieving 26th place. The German hub also came second place in the ‘world’s best regional airports for 2021’ category. 

The facility was already recognised as a four-star base in 2020, due to its independent rating that was conducted by the Skytrax agency.  

The consultancy firm recently named Doha’s Hamad International as the ‘Best Airport in the World’ after overtaking Changi for the first time in more than eight years.
