About the World Airline Awards
The World Airline Awards were created in 1999 when Skytrax launched its first global airline passenger satisfaction survey. The survey collects travellers' opinions on 300 airlines over a 9-month period and in 100 countries.
Airlines are ranked according to about 40 criteria, from check-in and boarding to staff service and seat comfort, cleanliness and in-flight entertainment. This year's survey polled over 21 million passengers worldwide. To learn more about the World Airline Awards, visit www.worldairlineawards.com.
