The poll is based on the views of 5,000 of the website’s users in Europe. Keflavík International Airport ranked eighth while London Heathrow took the top spot.
Respondents based their reasoning on amenities, cleanliness, entertainment, food and shopping. MissTravel.com CEO Brandon Wade said in a press release that entertainment is important for passengers while they wait.
“I fly every other week and have been through my fair share of travel woes. The first thing I look for if my plans go sour, is a place to work, and a good meal, which surprisingly, is not easy to come by in every airport,” he explained.
