The best airlines of the year 2013 by Skytrax

Every year, the passengers from more than 160 countries all over the world take part in survey, which is prepared by British organisation Skytrax. The main target of this research is to find out about the qualities, conditions and facilities which are offered by every world’s airline. In this way, travellers from all over the world can choose the best option for themselves.

The titles of this survey were awarded in categories like:

The World’s Best Airline,
Best by Cabin,
Best Seats,
Best Lounges,
Best Catering,
Best by Region
Best Regional Airlines,
Best Low-Cost Airlines.

In the main category The World’s Best Airline the winner is Emirates. Emirates also received The Winner awards for Best Airline in the Middle East and The World’s Best Airline Inflight Entertainment. Therefore, this is a big surprise for that world’s airline because a year ago Emirates in official classification was in 8th place.
President of Emirates, Mr Tim Clark commented on the award: “For us, the awards clearly reflect a vote of confidence from global travellers, who acknowledge and appreciate our continuous drive to deliver high-quality service.”
