Haikou Meilan International Airport has received its 5-Star Regional Airport Rating by Skytrax, the international air transport rating organisation, the airport said.
Haikou Meilan International Airport has now become the first Skytrax 5-Star Regional Airport in China and the 8th airport in the world with the Skytrax 5-Star Airport Rating.
Established in 1989 with its headquarter in London, UK, Skytrax is an international air transport rating organization dedicated to improving customer experience for airlines and airports across the world.
The prestigious 5-Star Regional Airport Rating was introduced by Skytrax in 2016 to enable proper recognition of airports that predominantly focus on regional route operations. Whilst not global mega hubs, they are airports that deliver the highest quality services to their customers and meet the stringent 5-Star requirements.
In 2011, Haikou Airport began enhancing frontline service standards, and has undertaken several major construction projects. Introduction of new and better amenities have also contributed to a more relaxed and stress free time at the airport.
Haikou Airport is accessible by an efficient transport network and many modes of transport, which includes high-speed rail directly connecting the terminal with all major cities on Hainan Island. It closed 2016 with 18.8 million in passenger traffic.
