These are The Worst Airports in the World 🌍 🛃

We often hear about the rankings of the best airports, with the usual candidates being Singapore, Doha, and Tokyo. But what about the other end of the scale, which are actually the worst airports?

Published by

To answer this question objectively, we took a look at the data from the British aviation rating agency Skytrax. There, both airlines and airports are rated according to several criteria.

Reassuringly, there is currently not a single airport in the lowest category with just one star. If we look at the next highest group, with two stars, we find 54 airports scattered around the world. They stand for below-average service and a poor passenger experience. We have sorted them by continent for you:
