AirlineRatings has named Singapore Airlines as the world’s best airline for 2019. Previous five times winner of Airline of the Year, Air New Zealand, came second and Qantas in third.

The Airline Excellence Awards, endorsed by the International Civil Aviation Organization, was judged by seven editors with over 200 years’ industry experience.

They rated the safety and in-flight products of 450 airlines using a seven-star rating system. The criteria used includes passenger reviews, the age of aircraft’s fleets , profitability, investment, products and staff relations.

The Editor-in-Chief of AirlineRatings.com Geoffrey Thomas commented:

“In our objective analysis Singapore Airlines came out number one in many of our audit criteria, which is a great performance.”
“One of the standouts in the industry for decades it has returned to its best with a new product, new aircraft and new innovative flights such as the Singapore-New York non-stop. Quite simple the airline is the Gold Standard.”
