SINGAPORE, April 11 (Xinhua) -- Singapore's Changi Airport was named the world's best again on Thursday by Skytrax, an website known for its reviews of the world's airlines and airports.

It was the fourth time Changi was named the world's best. The airport also picked up the awards for Best Airport in Asia and the Best Airport for Leisure Amenities.

Edward Plaisted, chairman of Skytrax, said Changi continues to be a leader and innovator within the industry and is a key reason why it has been ranked amongst the top three airports for the last 14 years of the awards.

"The vast array of leisure and entertainment facilities really stands out at Changi and serves to highlight the extent to which the airport management has gone to ensure maximum levels of passenger satisfaction. We only have to look at the fact that Changi served more than 50 million passengers for the first time during 2012, to see that it continues to attract customers and maintain its place as one of the world's leading hub airports," he said.

South Korea's Incheon International Airport came in the second place, followed by Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in the third place. The Hong Kong International Airport and Beijing Capital International Airport won the fourth and fifth place, respectively.
