This year, the title of best airport was given to … drum roll please … Doha’s Hamad International Airport in Qatar! After travelers were asked to rank their experience at various airports around the world for things such as ease of transfers, service at check-in counters, and access to shopping, Hamad International Airport in Qatar came up on top.
