SkyTrax: The Best Airports in Africa

The SkyTrax Award , which lists the best airports on the world is based on a questionnaire filled in by 11 million passengers. Hong Kong International Airport was voted the best airport in the world, followed by Singapore Changi Airport and Incheon International Airport. It's important to note that the best three airports are in the Far East Asia.
 The Top accolades in Africa not surprisingly went to South Africa. The best airports in Africa in 2011 are located in South Africa, not surprising given the development and upgrade in its aviation infrastructure that the country underwent in hosting the 2010 World Cup and some solid past investments in its aviation infrastructure. It's therefore not a surprise that South Africa has the most competitive domestic aviation market in Africa.

Here are the best Airports in Africa:
