About the World Airline Awards

The World Airline Awards are most coveted Quality accolades for the airline industry, often referred to as "the Oscars of the aviation industry", and are a global benchmark of airline excellence. Travellers across the globe take part each year in the world’s largest airline passenger satisfaction survey to decide the winners. Skytrax Survey and Awards Methodology is fully transparent, and the processes remain 100% independent with no payment by any airline or other outside organisation for any aspect of the customer survey or Awards presentation event.
