Dubai, UAE – November 16, 2016 – Dubai International has been voted for the second consecutive year as the world’s Best Airport for Layovers at the Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards Middle East at a ceremony in Dubai on Monday.

Dubai was the top choice among the three final nominees chosen in the category by readers of the luxury travel publication, the other two being Doha’s Hamad International Airport, and Singapore’s Changi International Airport.

Welcoming the honour as a validation of the renewed focus and efforts of Dubai Airports to enhance customer experience across Dubai International, Anita Mehra, Senior Vice President, Communication & Reputation said, “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.”

“DXB had a great start to the year with the opening of the US$ 1.2 billion Concourse D which not only elevated airport experience but also provided timely capacity for our growing traffic. We delighted our customers with live performances of international artists through the #musicDXB campaign, and ensured travellers had a smooth and fun start to their holidays during our busiest summer in history through the Hangout@DXB campaign,” she added.

DXB was voted as the favourite among the international hubs based on the round the clock availability of a wide range of contemporary food and beverage 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.
