Dubai International was recently voted the world’s Best Airport for Layovers at the Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards Middle East for the second year running.

The airport beat two other final nominees, Doha’s Hamad International and Changi International Airport in Singapore, chosen by readers of the travel magazine.

“This recognition means a lot to everyone at Dubai Airports and all our stakeholders at DXB who work very hard together to ensure the comfort and happiness of our customers,” said Anita Mehra, Dubai Airports’ Senior Vice President, Communication and Reputation.


DXB was voted the favourite among the international hubs thanks to its round-the-clock availability of a range of contemporary food and drink options, a variety of top class retail brands, the comfort of luxurious airside hotels and unique relaxation concepts, such as spa treatments and sleeping pods.

The award was presented at a gala ceremony in November 2016.

The Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards Middle East honour the best in luxury travel and hospitality. Readers filled out an online survey, nominating and voting for their favourite travel experiences, properties and operators.
