While Singapore's Changi Airport (SIN) maintains its number two position in the ranking for the second year running, it'sTokyo's Narita International Airport (NRT) that secured first place in 2013, a jump from its fourth place position in the 2012 survey.

London Heathrow is the only UK airport making an appearance in the rankings, coming in 4th place in the Bars & Restaurants category, 8th for Shopping and 10th in the world for its waiting lounges.

This is the first time London Heathrow is present in eDreams' third annual study.

Compared to the 2012 results, European airports have fared slightly better in the overall rankings of the 2013 survey.

Five European airports have made it into the top 10 best airports in 2013, compared to just four in 2012. The highest rated European airport is Germany's Hamburg Airport (HAM) with an overall position of fourth place.

The eDreams "Best Airports in the World 2013" study was made possible by participating eDreams customers, a number that has reached in excess of 14 million travellers.
