Qatar Airways named world’s best airline

2 min read

Over the last 25 years, the Skytrax Awards have built a reputation as the Oscars of the airline world—and picking this year’s winner came down to the wire.

In the end, though, Qatar Airways took top honors, narrowly edging out last year’s winner Singapore Airlines. Qatar is a multi-time winner of the Skytrax Awards.

The rankings, which come from the UK firm, are based on surveys of over 21 million customers from 100 countries. And this year’s vote was so close it required a recount, Skytrax says.

North American airlines, though, have nothing to celebrate. No U.S. carrier made the Top 10—or even the Top 20.

Dubai’s Emirates airline came in third, while Japan’s ANA All Nippon Airways took fourth. Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific was fifth. Japan Airlines placed sixth and Turkish Airlines took seventh. Taiwan’s EVA Air in ranked number eight; Air France was ninth and Swiss International Airlines came in 10th.

In individual categories, Cathay Pacific took the title of World’s Cleanest Airline. Singapore Airlines got the nod for best cabin crew. Qatar topped the world’s best business class. And Cathay Pacific got best economy class.

Delta Air Lines was declared the Best Airline in North America. It also got an award for Best Airline Staff Service in the region. Alaska Airlines was named the world’s ninth best regional carrier.
