The Skytrax survey covers 550 airports worldwide to determine the awards.

Kansai airport already received the Best Airport Terminals for Low-cost Airlines in 2015: opened as Japan's first LCC-dedicated terminal in October 2012, Terminal 2 was expanded to provide an international passenger area in January 2017. As part of the terminal upgrade, the smart security system and a walk-through shopping area were introduced as first in Japan.

"This recognition for the expansion done to Terminal 2 in 2017 as Best Low-Cost Airline Terminal and Best Baggage Delivery which has now been received for 4 years in a row, was achieved thanks to all airport staff's strong teamwork and dedication towards our partners and passengers." said co-CEO of Kansai Airports, Emmanuel Menanteau.

Kansai airport, as part of the VINCI Airports network, continues to focus on delivering the best experience of comfort for all guests.
