Skytrax apply ratings between 1-Star and 5-Star for up to 800 customer-facing areas of airport product and service, and this spans over 30 different customer contact points from the airport website to terminal hotel quality.

The Star Rating methodology is unified and consistent for the industry, and all airports from largest hubs to small regional facilities are assessed using the same base rating criteria. Ratings are based on the front-line customer experience on the end-to-end journey through an airport. Final ratings are applied either when an Airport Audit is completed, or our audit team have gathered enough data to undertake a full airport rating.
