Why Heathrow is the best airport in the world

Heathrow airport is consistently on the list of the best airports in the world, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that it is so highly ranked. It is one of the busiest airports in the world, but just because it is busy doesn’t mean that customer service and facilities are overlooked. It is such a pleasure to fly out of Heathrow, every time I have been it gets my holiday off to a great start!backdrop_small_airports

Amazing customer service

When it comes to friendly service, Heathrow airport ranks very highly! The staff are always willing to assist and help in anyway they can. There’s nothing better than being met with a smile before you jet off on holiday, it puts you in the right mood before boarding the plane. I have always felt very comfortable approaching a member of staff at the airport because I know they will help me as best they can.

Great hotels

Heathrow has some fantastic hotels for you to stay in. There is something there to fit everyone’s budget, whether you are looking for a five star hotel with great facilities or just a hotel to lay your head for the night, you will have no trouble finding what you’re looking for. It’s always a great idea to stay in an airport hotel before you fly, it means that you will be relaxed and refreshed before you check in for your flight. Nearly all of the hotels will offer a free shuttle service to the airport, this makes your trip even more relaxing because you don’t have to rush to find a parking space before you fly. Check what is on offer before you make a booking, it will avoid any possible disappointment when you arrive at the hotel.

Shop till you drop


In so many airports that I have gone through, I have struggled to pass the time once I have cleared security and immigration. This is not the case when I go through Heathrow. The duty free on offer is the best you will find, you have everything from the usual shops to high end stores, if you want to buy that designer t-shirt you have always wanted then you will definitely find it! Maybe you want to pick up a bottle of your favourite perfume, if you have time then you can stroll around the shops finding the one you like. The other great thing is that the bookshops have a great selection and are very reasonably priced, I love picking up a new book before a long haul flight.
