Bavarian hub takes sixth “European champion” title


Munich Airport has yet again been voted Europe’s best airport in the World Airport Awards. This marks the sixth time Munich has received this honor, which it won last year and four years in a row from 2005 to 2008. In the worldwide rankings, Munich Airport matched the outstanding number four position it achieved in the previous year.

This was the outcome of the latest survey by the London-based independent aviation research institute Skytrax, based on the replies of over 11 million passengers from more than 100 countries. The award was presented to FMG, the Munich Airport operating company, at a ceremony in Copenhagen yesterday evening on the occasion of the Passenger Terminal international trade fair.
