Hamad International Airport has been ranked at number one in the world in AirHelp Score 2019, Global Airport Ranking. In Global Airline Ranking by AirHelp Score 2019, Qatar Airways has been declared as the best global airline for passenger experience.

Among the best global airports, Tokyo International Airport (Japan) and Athens International Airport (Greece) are at number 2 and 3 respectively.

Looking at 133 airports all over the world, AirHelp used a combination of flight data and customer input, ranking each airport based on timeliness (60%), quality of service (20%) and availability of food and shops (20%) for travelers.

The most on time airports in the world

Each of these factors matter more or less to each traveler. For me, there is nothing that I loathe more than walking through 30 minutes of shops in order to make it to my gate on time. (Dubai International…I’m looking at you.) I’ll always opt for a smaller airport with a more punctual record than one with lots of bells and whistles.

In terms of timeliness, the top three airports in the world are Brussels South Charleroi, Sheremetyevo Moscow International and Tokyo Haneda International. Qatar’s Hamad International ranks 7th when just looking at on time performance.

Among the best global airlines, Qatar Airways is followed by American Airlines at number 2 and Aeromexico at number 3.

The AirHelp Score on airlines shows one which airlines offer the best service, fly on time, and treat passengers fairly if problems occur. AirHelp Score is calculated on multiple factors including on-time performance, service quality, claim processing.

For on-time performance, AirHelp gathers arrival and departure statistics for every plane and calculate how many of an airline’s flights are on schedule. For service quality, AirHelp surveyed thousands of air passengers around the world and asked them to rate the food, comfort and crew of their most used airlines while claim processing relates to how efficiently airlines handle compensation claims, including how long it takes them to pay out.

For airport ranking too, score was calculated on multiple factors. For on-time performance, AirHelp used the on-time performance statistics for every airport to calculate how likely it is that your flight will be on time. For service quality, AirHelp asked thousands of people from around the world to tell it about customer service, queues and cleanliness at their local airports.
