Which is the world's best airline? These rankings tell it all!

NEW YORK – When it comes to globetrotters, they prefer the airlines which are top class in terms of quality and services and to solve their problems, fresh rankings have been announced. 

In the prestigious Skytrax World Airline Awards for 2023, Singapore Airlines has bagged the title for being the best airline in the world, for the fifth time in the accolades’ 23-year history.

The announcement came at a gala on June 20 at the Air and Space Museum at the Paris Air Show and acknowledged many other airlines for other features.

“Singapore Airlines achieved excellent results in many of the award categories, with the highlight being recognition of their First Class cabin as the World’s Best First Class,” said Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax.

For this award, the UK-based aviation consultancy conducted independent self-funded customer surveys across more than 325 airlines worldwide between September 2022 and May 2023, and Singapore Airlines was declared the best.

On the victory, Goh Choon Phong, CEO of Singapore Airlines, said it was down to the tireless work of his team, who made “many sacrifices to ensure that SIA was ready for the recovery in air travel. That has allowed us to emerge stronger and fitter from the pandemic.”
