The World's Most Beautiful Airports

When jet setting to the country of your dreams, you want the first thing you see to reflect the culture you're about to immerse yourself in.

Some have architecture ahead of its time, while others keep things grounded with traditional design ideas to really let you know you've arrived at your destination.

Here at, we thought we would take you through some of the standout airports in the world when it comes to overall beauty.

  • Singapore Changi Airport

Currently rated as the world's best airport, the Singapore Changi Airport sets a new standard in aviation travel.

While being a favourite city for global travellers, it processes 68 million passengers each year.

And with landmarks in the airport such as the famous rain vortex in the nature themed entertainment and retail complex, this airport, in one of the most vibrant cities in the world, is one that any avid adventurer must visit.

  • John F. Kennedy International Airport

Serving as the main airport for New York City, the airport colloquially known as JFK is one of the most famous places in the world.

Built in 1948, the spaceship design of the main entrance hall was architecturally ahead of its time, and its design still stands up impressively to this day, and even building more terminals to accommodate passengers all over the world visiting the 'Big Apple'.

Although not as modern as the other airports in this list, 'JFK' claims its beauty from its heritage and ability to stand the test of time, as well as being a true benchmark for all airports to follow in its footsteps.

  • Madrid Barajas International Airport

Known for its exquisite modern contemporary art style and forward-thinking design, the airport of Madrid is without doubt one of the most beautiful airports in Europe, perhaps even the world. The fourth terminal is also the largest terminal building in Spain, and even one of the largest in the world.

Along with its uniquely designed skylights, which let in a natural light not often seen in modern airports, the airport boasts open and spacious hallways with a ceiling that looks like crashing waves.

The blueprint does follow suit with modern contemporary Spanish design, as the country is known for having some of the most recognisable minimalistic architectural stylings in Europe.

  • Menara Airport Marrakech

Serving as one of the main airports among the Arab world nations, the Menara airport in Marrakech stands as a true symbol in Arabic culture and design.

Acting as a cargo hub for the United States Air Force during the Second World War, the airport transported aircraft, personnel, and equipment en route to Casablanca Airport.

At its peak before the COVID-19 pandemic, the airport was welcoming over six million people every year, and continues to be a mainstay for air traffic in the northern part of Africa.
