It goes without saying that private jets are owned by just a handful of people in the world. It therefore does not come as a surprise that the list of people who own private jets features prominent people in different fields. Their names range from music and sport celebrities to popular CEOs and business men. These are people who can’t do without customized luxury whether they are travelling by road, by water or by air. Some choose private air charter flights while some fly in their own jets. Either way, they always want to have the best experience when travelling.
If you are one of them, you will certainly want to know where you will land. You will therefore go for the best airports in the world. With that in mind, consider the following airports. They have been rated by travelers time and again as the best airports in the world for commercial and private flights.
Hong Kong International Airport
Surveys conducted by several multinational survey and research companies have indicated time and again that Hong Kong international Airport is the world’s best airport in terms of security and passenger experience. This is despite the fact that the airports serves more than 15 million passengers every year. Its VIP lounge areas appeal to the high and mighty from all over the world.

With over 20 gates, the airport is rated as the most secure airport in Asia, with no major terrorist threats reported since its grand opening.
Copenhagen International Airport
The airport boasts of the highest ratings in Europe when it comes to baggage delivery. This is of course strange given that the airport serves more than 21 million passengers in the world every year.

The areas exude luxury, comfort and of course convenience. The airport is also a hub for the Star Alliance, which is network of 27 international airlines from all over the world that fly to 1610 airports in more than 180 airports.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport
It is considered by many as the best airport in the world for immigration service. But that’s not all. The airport is unique in several ways. First off, its main terminal is ‘eco friendly’. An entire section of Kuala Lumpur’s rain forest was placed inside the main terminal. This of course, took a lot of research to ensure the airport does not affect the airports eco system. The idea was to have ‘a forest in the airport and an airport in the forest’. This is perhaps why more than 29,000,000 passengers travel through the airport every year. It is certainly because of this kind of uniqueness that many private jet owners prefer the airport. They are attracted to its unique location and of course, luxurious perks that the airport offers for chartered flights.

The airport is considered as one of the best in Europe for cargo flights and private jets.
Zurich International Airport
As far as clean airport terminals are concerned, Zurich international airport takes the medal. The airport is arguably the best for private jet owners and passengers flying on charged planes.

Depending on how much one pays, the porter service ensures that your bag is picked from anywhere within the airports and delivered to your destination.
Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport
It was opened in 1916 as a military airfield. The airport has since grown and is now one of Europe’s busiest airports serving more than 40 million passengers every year.
