Crescentrating's Halal Friendly Travel (CRaHFT) Ranking 2013 Top Halal Friendly Airports for 2013,In our series of CRaHFT Ranking for 2013, for the 2nd year running, we are pleased to release our ranking of Top 10 Halal Friendly Airports in two categories; OIC member states and Non-OIC Countries. 

Although many airports are begining to take into account the needs of the growing segment of Muslim travellers, lot more can be done in order to make these travellers comfortable at the Airport as well as ensuring a larger share of their expenditure at the airport. Having better airport services for this segment is not only imprtant for visitors to the destination, but also for the airport to become a preferred transit airport.

CRaHFT Ranking 2012 | Top 10 Halal Friendly Airports (OIC Countries)

In our series of CRaHFT Ranking 2012, we are excited to announce "CrescentRating's Halal Friendly Travel (CRaHFT) Ranking 2012" of the Top 10 Halal Friendly Airports (OIC Countries) in 2012.

Traveling through airports in OIC countries is actually much easier for Muslim travelers; not only do they have all of the facilities we usually find at an airport, but can also take comfort in the fact that the airports will almost always have certain necessities such as Halal food availability and a prayer room. The 10 airports listed below were chosen as the Top 10 Halal Friendly Airports in OIC Countries for 2012 because they go a little beyond the norm; some have full-sized mosques while others have extensive selection of Halal Food.
