Skytrax, is a company created in the United Kingdom, which is dedicated to analyze and compare quality, different airlines and airports in the world.
Annually, Skytrax publishes a list of the 100 best airports in the world, based on 13.25 million surveys completed by travelers from 106 different nationalities. On this occasion, we could see that 5 Latin American airports were positioned a little higher than in previous years, thus achieving, position among the 100 best airports in the world.
The best located Latin airport in this list is the El Dorado International Airport, in Bogotá. Currently, it is in position number 46, which just a year ago was in position 94, and the improvement of the Bogota airport is particularly noticeable for travelers.
Meanwhile, Jorge Chavez International Airport, located in Lima, is at position 49. Followed by Mariscal Sucre International Airport and José Joaquín Olmedo International Airport, both located in Ecuador, which are positioned at positions 62 and 65 of The best airports in the world.
Finally, the top of the 5 best Latin American airports is closed by the Tocumen International Airport, Panama, which is ranked number 86 of the top 100 in the world according to surveys conducted on travelers who have visited this airport.
Many economists say that having a modern airport and frequented by large airlines in a country is a symbol of prosperity, success and economic development.
However, Latin America has left much to be desired in recent years, due to the reduction of air services, low variety of airlines, in addition to high costs, few airports and poor comfort for travelers.
In this regard, different studies and articles have been published such as “The Guide to Sleeping in Airports” that position several of the Latin airports as the worst in the world for travelers to make stops, spend the night, eat food, etc.
The impact of this type of items has been so great that several cities have begun to invest in their airports, being reflected in the positions they occupy in the listings that determine which airports are preferred by world travelers.
