Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax, said: "Changi Airport continues to innovate in both product and service options for its customers, and focus on making the customer experience at the airport as enjoyable and relaxing as possible."

It's easy to see why Singapore Airport has remained in first place given that the airport has a cinema, music bar lounges and even a rooftop swimming pool, CNBC reports.

In 2017 Changi Airport will be updating their facilities with the new Terminal 4.

The renovation will include a double volume arrivals hall, self-service kiosks, bag drop counters and a 'Heritage Zone'.

Other categories included in Skytrax's awards are top 10 airlines, cleanest airlines and top 10 economy class seats among others.
