Also this year the specialized site SleepinginAirport has ranked the best and worst airports to spend the night. Among surprises and confirmations, let’s discover together which are they.
The annual rankings of Sleeping in Airports are based on the votes of its users/travelers, who are asked to judge their travel experience in the major airports of the world during the year.
Most of the parameters used are common to those of many other rankings on the quality of services and airport facilities (comfort, customer service, cleanliness, Wi-Fi, the presence of shops and showers, etc.), But the investigation of Sleeping in airports distinguishes for a special category, the so-called “sleep-ability”, ie the degree of hospitality and comfort that the airports offer to those who find themselves spending the night at the airport, because of lengthy technical stopovers and uncomfortable departure times.
