Most Improved! NAIA ranks 10th in a global survey

Another good news!

A recent global survey finally changes the image of what was once a terrible and controversial airport. This, after a London-based research firm awarded the main airport of the country's hub redeeming the airport's reputation.

In a recent global survey of Skytrax, a research firm based in London, NAIA or the Ninoy Aquino International Airport has been named as one of the world’s “most improved” airports in 2018.

With actual travelers all over the world as its real respondents, the airport that was then ranked as one of the world's worst airport now ranked 10th place in Top 10 World’s Most Improved Airports, Skytrax survey showed.

Along with Ninoy Aquino International Airport are other countries mostly located at the western side of the globe.

Topping the list was Fiumicino Airport in Rome, Italy. Next to it was Perth Airport in Western Australia and then followed by Calgary International Airport in Alberta, Canada.

The Skytrax’s World Airport Awards website says the award was “based on the relative year-on-year Quality performance by all airports featured in the World Airport Survey, and takes into account the change in rating together with performance changes across the different product and service categories in the awards.”

Reportedly, there was more than 13 million travelers from over a hundred different nationalities around the world who participated in the survey of the London-based research firm.

The Skytrax website also stated that “The survey operated from August 2017 to February 2018, covering 550 airports worldwide and evaluating traveller 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. The Survey was available in English, Spanish and Chinese language options”.

It can be recalled that during the time of the former President Noynoy Aquino, the country was put into shame after the 'laglag-bala' scam thrived and corrupted a lot of passengers from different parts of the world. Thus, gave the Philippines a bad name due to the disappointment of both the local and foreign travelers brought by such scandal.

Soon after President Rodrigo Roa Duterte came to power, the controversial airport was removed from the world's worst airport list year 2017 based in the travel website The Guide to Sleeping in Airports prior being one of the most improved airports this year as released by another survey firm, Skytrax.
