TripAdvisor has released its first airline ratings results based on passenger reviews. Emirates has scooped the Best Airline in the World award in the inaugural TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards for Airlines.
This is the first year TripAdvisor has introduced a category for airlines in its signature Travelers’ Choice Awards. The awards highlight the world’s top carriers based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for airlines worldwide gathered over a 12-month period.
Singapore Airlines took second spot, with Brazil's Azul in third place.

"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."
Emirates is the world’s largest international airline, serving 155 destinations in 83 countries across six continents.
In addition to clinching the grand prize, the airline took home four other awards including Best Major Airline - Middle East & Africa, Best Economy Class, Best First Class and World’s Best Airlines - Top 10.
