The Skytrax World Airline Awards are coveted quality accolades for the global aviation industry, where travellers from across the globe take part each year in the world’s largest airline passenger satisfaction survey to decide the winners.
The World Airline Awards are a global benchmark of airline excellence, and are widely known as the Passenger Choice Awards.
About The World Airline Awards:
The World Airline Awards began in 1999, when Skytrax launched its first global airline passenger satisfaction survey.
The focus is to deliver a passenger based survey and an airline awards process that is independent, impartial and global, and this ethos remains essential to all aspects in the present day context.
A key directive of the survey is for customers to make their own, personal choices as to which airlines they consider to be the best, reinforcing the brand as the Passenger’s Choice Awards.
