Frommer’s Top 10 Airports For Business Travelers

Travel guide company Frommer’s has named their best ten airports for business-friendly travel. Their criteria for this list centered around the efficiency of an airport, rather than whether it is a “major global hub.” “Bonus points” were awarded to “airports with alluring in-terminal hotels, streamlined baggage claim service, and snappy train service to vital business districts.”

Do you agree with Frommer’s list? Which airports would you add or omit?

  1. Changi (SIN) in Singapore: Catch a nap in a sleep room or a flick at one of the movie houses.
  2. *Chek Lap Kak (HKG) in Hong Kong: Two downtown train station allow you to check baggage and print boarding passes. A nine-hole golf course is available as a fun diversion during flight delays.
  3. *Haneda, a.k.a, Tokyo International (HND) in Tokyo: This airport is closer to central Tokyo than Narita is, and a new international terminal offers an array of food options.
  4. Ronald Reagan National (DCA) in Washington D.C.: Separate security lines at each terminal make getting through security an efficient process . Plus, there is plenty of seating throughout the airport.
  5. *Kastrup (CPH) in Copenhagen: According to Frommer’s, this is the “most-connected” of Nordic airports, with electronic signs posted throughout the airport.
  6. Dubai International (DXB) in Dubai: Work out in the gym or take a dip in the pool during a layover. Or shop til you drop at the 58,000 square-foot shopping center.
  7. San Francisco International (SFO) in San Francisco: A renovated Terminal 2, to re-open in spring 2011, will offer seats with plug-in power outlets and increased security lanes. The airport also offers quick  passports-and-customs processing.
  8. *Incheon (ICN) in Seoul: This airport has an on-time arrival and departure record of 83%! But if you happen to be among the minority of folks waiting around, you have the option of enjoying a transit hotel, gardens and a “futuristic” train terminal.
  9. Munich Franz Josef Strauss (MUC) in Munich: The airport boasts its own Bavarian brewery and a showroom of BMWs.
  10. London City Airport (LCY) in London: Quick baggage claim and international arrivals processing make this one of the most efficient airports. There’s also an in-terminal rail connection.

    I was going to say DCA and iAD. Everything runs fast and TSA staff are helpful and polite. I figure it’s to ensure that legislators and regulators have no idea what it is really like elsewhere.
