Taoyuan airport among top airports for layovers: survey
Taipei, July 8 (CNA) Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport was ranked fourth "best airport for layovers" in the Leisure Lifestyle Award hosted by Global Traveler magazine, the airport management company said Wednesday.
The airport stood out because of friendly transit directions, tight schedule arrangements, interesting waiting room designs and the fact that it takes no more than three hours on average to connect to other major Asian cities, said Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Co. (TIAC).
It was a morale-boost for the company as the survey of readers from Oct. 1, 2019, to Jan. 31, 2020, left open-ended comments, said TIAC CEO Lin Hsiang-sheng (林祥生).
It means candidates must make a profound impression for respondents to leave a comment, he said.
The country's largest gateway, the airport finished behind Miami International Airport, Singapore Changi Airport and Doha Hamad International Airport, according to Global Traveler, a U.S.-based monthly magazine published mainly for frequent business and luxury travelers.
In other categories, Taiwan came second in "best adventure destination, international," while Taipei won the "best leisure destination in Asia" for the third consecutive year.
