Salt Lake City International Airport is in rare air, both on a regional and international scale, according to the World Airport Awards.
Jumping up five spots from last year, Salt Lake City International Airport ranks as the 94th best airport in the world. The airport in the top spot for 2013 is Singapore Changi Airport.
In North America, however, SLC International ranks as the ninth best regional airport, securing its spot among the region’s most active and popular airports, such as Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, Denver International Airport, Halifax Stanfield International Airport, Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport among others.
Maureen Riley, executive director of the Salt Lake City Department of Airports, suggested in a Salt Lake Tribune article that recent renovations in the restaurant and concession venues could have triggered the upswing of positive remarks about SLC International.

The World Airport Awards are based on more than 12.1 million survey questionnaires completed by airline customers in 395 airports worldwide. The survey evaluates traveler experiences across 39 different airport service and key performance indicators – from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and immigration through to departure at the gate.
The Airport of the Year survey is an independent Passenger study managed by Skytrax, and only airport survey that achieves a true worldwide participant base – known as the “Passenger’s Choice” awards.
