The Skytrax 2022 ranking has just been unveiled and ranks Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport as the best in Europe and 6th in the world.

While Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport was named best airport in Europe and 6th in the world, moving up 9 places, Paris-Orly airport moved up 27 places to 46th worldwide.

This is a good performance for the ADP group with 3 airports that have moved up again in the world's top 100. In addition, 5 airports belonging to its network are among the world's top 100 airports in terms of passenger satisfaction and quality of service.

Paris-Charles de Gaulle continues to make progress year on year since entering the top 100 in 2014 at number 94, a dazzling rise. Its latest installations have made this feat possible, including the junction between terminals 2B and 2D, the total refurbishment of terminal 2G, transformed by designer Dorothée Meilichzon. By December, Terminal 1 will reopen with a new 34,000 m² boarding hall.

In terms of shopping and passenger services, Paris-Charles de Gaulle remains in 6th place worldwide for the shopping offer and experience, is ranked 4th worldwide in the category of most family-friendly airports and is ranked 8th worldwide in the category of best website and digital services.

Paris-Orly is ranked 4th in the Western Europe region and 9th worldwide in the most family-friendly airports category. This increase reflects the continuous improvements that have taken place since the beginning of the health crisis, including the new extension of ORLY 4 with its 2,500 m² of glass surface and the renovation of Orly 1B.

In addition to the two Paris airports, three other airports in the network are among the top 100 airports: Delhi in 37th place which has moved up 8 places, Hyderabad in 63rd place which has moved up 1 place and Medina in 58th place which has moved up 10 places.

For this 2022 edition, Skytrax has rewarded the world's leading airport groups according to the quality of their health care system implemented during the pandemic. ADP Group is ranked 2nd worldwide and TAV Airports 3rd. 

The priority given to reception, quality of service and hospitality in Paris airports, but also internationally, is recognised here. The commitment of ADP Group employees, our partners and the entire airport community has been rewarded today. It is a collective victory that commits us to the future. 

Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of ADP Group

On the strength of these rankings, the ADP Group reaffirms its ambition to place Paris-Charles de Gaulle in the world's top 10 by 2025, as well as four airports in its network in the top 50 and eight in the top 100.
