The “stars” now are twice as bright in Houston with the announcement that both George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport have been awarded a 4-star ratings by Skytrax, recognized as a global air transport rating organization, the company said.
The 2018 results, announced in Stockholm, Sweden, make Houston only the third city in the world with two airports given a 4-star rating, and the only city in the Western Hemisphere with two 4-star rated airports. The only other cities in the world with two 4-star rated airports are Tokyo and Seoul.
World Airport Rating is the international airport quality rating program operated by Skytrax. Ratings are determined through direct and professional analysis of industry quality standards. The airport star ratings are recognized as a global benchmark of airport standards.
The Skytrax World Airport Awards — a global benchmark of airport excellence — are among the most prestigious accolades for the airport industry. The results of the survey were announced at the 2018 Skytrax World Airport Awards at Passenger Terminal EXPO in Stockholm on March 21, 2018.
