Dubai International (DXB), the world’s number one airport for international passengers, won the award for Best Airport at the inaugural Middle East ULTRAs (Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards) in Dubai recently.
Readers of luxury travel magazine Ultratravel who voted online across 20 categories to select the best airlines, airports, hotels, cruise operators and holiday destinations, chose Dubai International as the best airport over runners up Changi Airport in Singapore, Hong Kong International Airport, Seoul’s Incheon International Airport, and Heathrow Airport, London.
“We would like to thank the readers of Ultratravel for making us the winners with their overwhelming support; it means a lot to us. This award is special for a number of reasons, most importantly the nomination process which involves members of the public, the top quality competition and the fact that it is the inaugural event for ULTRAs here in the Middle East,” said Anita Mehra, Senior Vice President of Communications & Reputation at Dubai Airports.
“The fact that we serve our customers round the clock at DXB with a wide variety of contemporary food and beverage options, a world class shopping experience with a range of top retail brands, the comfort of the airside hotels, and unique services such as concourse spa treatments and sleeping pods, makes DXB a favourite international hub among travellers,” she added.
The ULTRAs take Dubai International’s tally of awards to 14 so far this year.
