Emirates named World’s Best Airline



We’ve always known that Emirates was good – it’s like being on a brunch in the sky for crying out loud – but we’ve just had confirmation that they’re really good. Excellent, in fact. Emirates Airline has just been named the World’s Best Airline 2016 at the Skytrax World Airline Awards. They scored a hat-trick, scooping three awards in total, including Best Airline in the Middle East and World’s Best Inflight Entertainment.

The results are based on the largest airline passenger satesfaction survey in the industry, making it a coveted title to hold. This marks the fourth time that Emirates has been named best airline at the awards, which have been running for 15 years. And it’s the 12th consecutive time that Emirates has scooped World’s Best Inflight Entertainment, making it a record.

Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airlines, said: “We are honoured to be recognised by the prestigious Skytrax awards. Emirates has always but our customers at the heart of what we do, and we work hand to deliver the very best experience possible to our customers at every touchpoint, every day, all around the world.”

As well as being the world’s best, Emirates is also the world’s biggest international airline, flying to 154 destinations in 81 countries. According to the airline, since winning the Skytrax award last year for its inflight entertainment, they have introduced 35 percent more TV channels, 20 percent more box sets and 35 percent more audio channels.

Commenting on the Award, Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax said: “This fourth World’s Best Airline title for Emirates is a fantastic achievement and true testament to the airline’s popularity. To satisfy customers from such a wide and diverse passenger base is not an easy task, but Emirates continues to gain superlative feedback from customers for its product and service offering from the front to the back of the aircraft.
