It feels as though there is always a new list of airport rankings that comes out, giving top marks to the spick-and-span airports of Asia while America's don't even merit Top 20. Well, there is another ranking list out, and it does stick to this, except that US airports do get recognized in categories like "Best Airport 15-25 million passengers," where BWI takes first place. The rankings have been released by the Airports Council International, which compiles their data on airport service annually thanks to a passenger survey of 300,000 customers from 153 airports, with criteria including "cleanliness, check-in efficiency, comfortable waiting areas and clear signage."

Here are the other big winners this year:

BEST AIRPORTS WORLDWIDE
1) Incheon (ICN)
2) Singapore (SIN)
3) Hong Kong (HKG)
4) Beijing (PEK)
5) Hyderabad (HYD)

BEST AIRPORT BY REGION: NORTH AMERICA
1) Austin (AUS)
2) Halifax (YHZ)
3) Ottawa (YOW)
4) Jacksonville (JAX)
5) Portland (PWM)

BEST AIRPORT BY REGION: EUROPE
1) Keflavik (KEF)
2) Zurich (ZRH)
3) Porto (OPO)
4) Malta (MLA)
5) Southampton (SOU)

And, for the most telling award yet: Cleveland (CLE) wins "Best Improvement for North America."
