The 2018 World Airline Awards, referred to as the “Oscars of the aviation industry," took place in London last week. Singapore Airlines took home the top spot for the fourth time in the award show's history.
Edward Plaisted of Skytrax commented: “We congratulate Singapore Airlines on this fabulous achievement, being voted the World’s Best Airline by customers for a fourth time in the awards history. A key ‘wow’ factor for customers is consistency and this proved to a real asset for Singapore Airlines who scored highly across both product and service. I am sure Singapore Airlines will also take great pride in winning the World’s Best First Class award, less than one year after they introduced their new first-class suites.”
The World’s Top 10 Airlines of 2018 are:
Singapore Airlines Qatar Airways ANA All Nippon Airways Emirates EVA Air Cathay Pacific Lufthansa Hainan Airlines Garuda Indonesia Thai Airways
Other notable accolades include China Southern Airlines winning the World’s Most Improved Airline, continued success for Garuda Indonesia being named the World’s Best Cabin Crew, and Qatar Airways as the World’s Best Business Class.
