We believe that airports are not just a means to an end – they’re part of the journey.

Your airport experience, be it good or bad, can affect your overall travel experience – and so it’s important to understand what good really looks like, whether you’re choosing where to fly from or just want to know what to expect.

By researching 30 of the UK’s airports, and the service and facilities they’re providing passengers – from the number of shops available to how accessible buildings are – we’ve been able to create a comprehensive review of airports in the UK.

Each airport has been ranked separately across all six categories. Together these form our overall rankings for 2019. Have a look around for a full picture of the standard of airports around the country.
