Tokyo's Narita Airport has been crowned the world's best airport for business travellers following a new study by travel deal comparison site Globehunters.

Globehunters had ranked 45 of the world's most popular airports for business travel against
a variety of factors such as on-time arrival performance, transit time, parking costs and the number of lounges offered.

Los Angeles International Airport in the United States came in second, while Germany's Frankfurt Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands, and Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the US rounded out the top five best airports for business travelers.

Narita is one of three Asian airports in the top 10 for 2019.  Tokyo Haneda Airport-which boasted the best on-time arrival performance-and Dubai International Airport made the top 10.

Singapore's much acclaimed Changi International Airport came in 12th, followed by Hong Kong International Airport (13), Seoul Incheon International Airport (14), and Thailand's Suvarnabhumi Airport     (15).

London Gatwick Airport in the UK fared the worst among the 45 airports Globehunters compared as a result of a poor on-time arrival percentage, lengthy transit time and expensive parking costs.
