Skytrax, a UK based consultancy which deservingly has the largest airline and airport review ranking site is also known worldwide for their annual World Airline Awards and the popular World Airport Awards. This year again, Skytrax completely has outdone itself by presenting one of the finest award ceremonies at the fabulous, the exciting and the memorable ‘Skytrax Airline Awards 2012’.
There is no doubt about the fact that this is the best of the consultancies as frequent travellers are allowed to freely comment on the services, outlook and their overall experience with any given airline. It also carries out surveys to judge the best airline and recommends it to future travellers. So if you’re planning on flying anywhere in the world, Skytrax is definitely the place to do all your research.
Another feather in the cap of Skytrax was this year’s award ceremony. Attended by leading influential figures of the aviation industry from all around the globe, the Skytrax World Airline Awards’ were gladly held on the 12th of July 2012 at the Farnborough Air show and what a huge success it was!
The glorious ‘Qatar Airways’ enjoyed spectacular success as it won the first position as the ‘Best Airline in the World’ for the second year. ‘Asiana Airlines’ came second and the third position was taken by the sensational ‘Singapore Airlines’. So if you’re looking to travel in the best of the best, these three are the finest of choices and will certainly leave you stunned by their remarkable services, smooth flight and impressively accommodating and friendly staff.
Whilst Skytrax definitely point out the best, it also appreciates those airlines that have improved over the years. This year ‘China Eastern Airlines’ was recognized as the ‘World’s most improved Airline’ followed by the ‘Transaero Airlines’ and ‘Virgin Australia’. We all would love to see these airlines improve further and perhaps make it into the list of the top ten Best Airlines next year!
If what you’re looking for is a high end luxury and comfort while travelling, then you must know that ‘Air Transat’ won the title of the ‘World’s Best Leisure Airline’ as it is known to have redefined leisure travel and will hopefully continue to do so. The second and the third positions were taken by ‘Thompson Airways’ and ‘Monarch Airlines’. Expect the finest of all luxuries from these breathtaking airlines and they will still be sure to surprise you with a little something extra.
‘Emirates’ has yet again proved itself by winning the award for the ‘Best In-flight Entertainment’. Be it a 2-hour flight or a 24-hour flight, you are guaranteed the utmost entertainment whilst travelling with Emirates. Feel free to go empty handed on the flight and be rest assured that you will still find something or the other to do. Perhaps the very fact that it is impossible for one to get bored whilst travelling with Emirates is what has made it worthy of its successful win this year.
Another important thing while picking out the right flight for you is the cabin staff and Skytrax surely keeps a check on that. This year, after carrying out surveys and welcoming consumer feedback, ‘Malaysia Airlines’ won the ‘World’s Best Cabin Staff’ award and rightly so. The friendly, well groomed and efficient hostesses are guaranteed to make your time spent in the airline worth every second of it as they ensure quality services and are very well accommodating.
All in all, this year, like any other one, Skytrax awards were a treat! The most awaited event in the world of air travel again proved itself and made wonders.
