Israel's Ben Gurion Airport places in world's top ten list

Israel's Ben-Gurion Airport is the 8th best airport in the world, according to Travel + Leisure magazine readers.

The popular New York-based travel magazine asked readers to share their views on the world's top airports, based on travelers' experiences of access, check-in and security, food, shopping and design. 

The 10 leading airports, revealed on Wednesday, will be feature in Travel + Leisure's annual World's Best Awards publication. 

It was Singapore's Changi Airport that once again took the title, finishing first for a fifth successive year with an unbeaten score of 90/100. Travelers highlighted the airport's outstanding facilities that might make the airport alone worth a trip to Singapore. Travelers who have time to spare can enjoy the free movie theater, napping lounges, gardens and even a rooftop pool.

Ben-Gurion Airport, rated 79/100, fell two places from its impressive 6th place ranking in 2016 but seemingly has a long way to go in order to compete with the global leader. 

Doha's Hamad International Airport finished runner-up, and Dubai International Airport finished in 3rd place. Only two European airports, Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport and Zurich, feature in the list.  

2016 was Ben-Gurion Airport's busiest year to date, with close to 18 million passengers passing through its terminals.
