Emirates has been Best Airline in the World in the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards for Airlines 2017.
In addition, Emirates also won the title of Best Major Airline – Middle East & Africa, Best Economy Class, Best First Class, and World’s Best Airlines – Top 10, making it the most awarded airline in the inaugural awards, with a total of five wins.
This is the first year TripAdvisor has introduced a category for airlines in its renowned Travelers’ Choice Awards, highlighting the world’s top carriers based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings gathered over a 12-month period.
“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 and we want travellers to continue making Emirates their first choice whenever they think to travel,” Emirates Airline president Sir Tim Clark says.
“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.”
The airline recently announced a multi-million-dollar cabin interiors upgrade including an enhanced Onboard Lounge for its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft which will debut in July, and has also recently introduced a host of exclusive new luxury products to its First and Business Class cabins, as well as several new products in Economy.
“It’s a high honour for Emirates to be recognised as the top airline in the world by the TripAdvisor community and speaks to their continued focus on delivering fantastic customer experiences,” TripAdvisor Flights General Manager Bryan Saltzburg.
Emirates is the world’s largest international airline, with an extensive network that has grown to offer its customers a choice of 155 destinations in 83 countries across six continents.
