The World Airline Awards
The World Airline Awards are considered to be a global measure of outstanding performance in the airline industry. Rather than being decided upon by a jury, the awards are based on the results of the world’s largest customer survey in the airline industry. It is carried out by the public opinion researcher Skytrax every year and involves about 20 million passengers across the globe from more than 160 countries. The detailed results of the World Airlines Awards can be found at www.worldairlineawards.com. Skytrax has carried out this passenger survey each year since 1999.
