Emirates named TripAdvisor Travellers' world's best airline

Dubai carrier also named best in First and Economy class

Emirates has been voted the best airline in the world in the inaugural TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for Airlines.

Chosen by passengers, the awards are based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for airlines worldwide gathered over a 12-month period.

Singapore Airlines was named second best, followed by Brazilian carrier Azul.

The Dubai carrier was also named as the best airline for First Class and Economy Class. Russian carrier Aeroflot picked up the best in Business Class accolade, while Air New Zealand won the best Premium Economy Class.

“The fact that the awards are a result of unbiased reviews and feedback speaks to our commitment to deliver a superior travel experience for our customers,” said Sir Tim Clark, President, Emirates airline.

”We want travellers to continue making Emirates their first choice whenever they think to travel. That is why we continue to invest in products and services across all classes, and why our service teams work hard and put their hearts into providing the very best experience for our customers both on board and on the ground every day.”

Emirates, the world’s largest international airline,  has a network of 155 destinations in 83 countries across six continents. It operates one of the world’s youngest modern wide-body fleets, and is the first and only airline in the world to operate a fleet of all Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft for its passenger flights.

The airline recently announced a multi-million dollar cabin interiors upgrade programme that includes an enhanced Onboard Lounge for its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft, which will make its debut in July.
