London Heathrow makes holiday travel top 10
London Heathrow has debuted in a top 10 league table of Best Airports in the World 2013.
The honour was voted for by thousands of European passengers themselves, as told to online travel agency eDreams.
Heathrow came fourth for its bars and restaurants, eighth for its shopping selection, and tenth for its waiting lounges.
The rankings underline the airport’s increasing popularity. Only recently, it was placed 10th overall in the prestigious World Airport Awards for 2013.
Heathrow scooped the best airport shopping honour.
Its Terminal 5 won best terminal building and the Sofitel London Heathrow was the sixth best airport hotel in the last World Airport Awards.
Terminal 5 hosts an 11,000-square-foot Harrods and a gallery displaying sculptures from up-and-coming British artists.
June 4 will see the airport’s Queen’s Terminal 2 launched, with 52 shops and 17 restaurants, such as the Perfectionists Cafe from celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal.
The eDreams’ global study finds that most travellers still prefer the services and installations of the Asian airports to European ones.
