Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi Named Among The World’s Worst Airports

Bangkok Suvarnabhumi was ranked in 9th place out of the ten worst airports.

The survey was compiled by AirHelp, a firm which specializes in helping customers get compensation from airlines for flight delays, who asked passengers to rate 76 international airports.

Passengers were asked their opinion on quality of service, passenger facilities, terminal comfort, check in and security.

“This research should hopefully give airlines and airports across the world, particularly in the UK, a nudge to improve their quality and punctuality urgently before the travel rush starts this summer.”
