Deep-pocketed travelers who fly business class have voted the Premium Terminal at Doha International Airport the best in the world for the third year in a row, for services like personal chauffeurs, five-star dining options and in-transit spa and sauna experiences.


Announced in Geneva this week, voters in Skytrax’s World’s Best Airport Awards named the luxury terminal by Qatar Airways the World’s Best Premium Service Airport, a US$100 million, 10,000-square-meter space built in 2006.

More than 12.1 million travelers cast votes for the World’s Best Airports Awards.
Doha’s Premium Terminal acts as a separate, self-contained airport for the fabulously rich and famous, with its own duty-free shopping area, self-service check-in kiosks and dedicated e-gates to speed up immigration formalities.

Reserved for first and business class travelers on Qatar Airways, passengers are privy to a personal chauffeur who will shuttle them to and from their plane. After being greeted by a concierge, visitors can choose between an array of five-star dining options such as hot and cold Arabic and international cuisine,  unwind in a spa and Jacuzzi, or get a massage.

Showers and private layover rooms are also available for passengers who want to freshen up and squeeze in a nap before boarding their next flight.

Families can likewise avail themselves of the nurseries and children’s play area, while business travelers have a conference and meeting room at their disposal.

Here are the top five Best Premium Service Airports in the world:

1.      Premium Terminal Doha International Airport, Qatar Airways

2.      Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, Thai Airways

3.      First Class Terminal, Frankfurt Airport, Lufthansa

4.      Abu Dhabi International Airport, Terminal 3
5.      SATS Singapore Changi Airport, Terminal 2
