Hong Kong International Airport soars to 3rd place in global business travel rankings


23rd February 2024 – (Hong Kong) In the high-stakes realm of business travel, the journey from conference room to cabin class is more than a mere transition—it’s a part of the executive lifestyle. The latest comprehensive study from BusinessFinancing.co.uk, which scrutinises the world’s airports through the lens of the business traveler, reveals a clear hierarchy of international hubs, with Hong Kong International Airport securing a prestigious position.

The research, delving into reviews from Airline Quality, underscores the importance of the airport experience for those traveling for work. With the modern business traveler expecting a blend of efficiency, comfort, and convenience, it is evident that not all airports are meeting these standards. However, Hong Kong International Airport defies the trend, ranking an impressive third globally with an average rating of 6.48/10.

Leading the global rankings with an exemplary score of 6.80/10 is Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi, Vietnam. It stands as a benchmark for what business travel should entail, offering top-notch facilities and service. On the other end of the spectrum, Brussels South Charleroi Airport in Belgium has been rated the least favourable, with travellers citing severe inadequacies in both amenities and organisation.

The UK’s contenders show a range of performances, with London Heathrow at the forefront, though its score of 3.73/10 reflects a broader sentiment that even the world’s busiest airports are not quite hitting the mark. The US sees Chicago’s Midway International Airport leading, yet its score barely breaks the average barrier.
