December 5, 2020 – A German online platform for train, bus, and plane travel, has named Zagreb Airport the worst of 30 capital city airports in Europe.
Out of a possible 100 points, the capital city airport received exactly zero.
OMNIO thus rated airports in 30 European capitals. They compared airports by several factors: availability, equipment, leisure facilities, and stress levels.
Among other things, they looked at the number of delayed flights, the daily number of passengers at the airport, and how they are equipped: whether they have showers, “quiet” rooms, restrooms, and places with electricity for chargers. Another criterion according to which the final grade was given was the number of quality leisure facilities offered, including shops, restaurants, and play areas for children.
The winner is Madrid International Airport in Spain thanks to “a wide range of shops and restaurants, as well as good connections between the airport and the city center”. Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci – Fiumicino Airport is second in line, while Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is in third place.
In fourth place is Copenhagen, in fifth is Moscow, followed by Helsinki, while the top 10 is closed out by Heathrow in London, Portela in Lisbon, Vaclav Havel in Prague, and finally, Berlin-Brandenburg Airport in the German capital.
Zagreb-Franjo Tudjman International Airport is the worst of all with exactly zero points out of a possible 100. The second worst is the airport in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica, and the third-worst in the Armenian capital Yerevan.
