Qantas and Singapore named the best airlines in the world by AirlineRatings.com

QANTAS has been named as one of the best airlines in the world if you want to travel in style.

Popular travel rating website Airlineratings.com has announced the winners for their third annual Best of the Best in luxury air travel, and Qantas, along with Singapore Airlines were clearly ahead of the competition.

Editors of the site examined the offerings and in-flight service of more than 450 airlines.

Qantas and Singapore made it into the Top Ten in each of the four categories, while Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific Airways and Etihad made the Top Ten in three of the categories.

AirlineRatings.com Editor-In-Chief Geoffrey Thomas said that it was “not surprising that Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific Airways, Etihad Airways and the Virgin Group featured so significantly in the Top Ten selections. These airlines are consistently a byword for in-flight excellence and service. They are the trendsetters and the industry looks to what they are doing next.”

AirlineRatings launched in June 2013 and rates the safety and in-flight product of 450 airlines using a proprietary system.

The winners — in alphabetical order:

FIRST CLASS: All Nippon Airways, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Lufthansa, Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Swiss and Thai International

BUSINESS CLASS: Air France, Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Etihad Airways, Japan Airlines, Qatar, Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia/Atlantic

PREMIUM ECONOMY: Air France, Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, EVA Air, Japan Airlines, Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Virgin Atlantic/Virgin Australia

LONG HAUL ECONOMY CLASS: Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific Airways, Etihad, EVA Air, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Qantas, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways

In June, Qatar Airways was voted the best airline for 2015 in the annual Skytrax awards for the world’s best airline.

Meanwhile, in June the presitigous Skytrax awards were revealed, with Qantas coming in at number 10 on the list. The awards are judged by 18.9 million passengers in 110 countries around the world who vote on factors such as comfort, friendliness of cabin crew and in-flight food.

The top ten airlines included Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Turkish and Emirates.

In the low-cost airline category AirAsia was voted the world’s best for the seventh year in a row, despite the tragic accident in the Java Sea last year that killed all 162 people on-board flight QZ8501.

Other awards included Garuda Indonesia for best cabin crew, Air France for most improved airline, EVA Air for cleanest aircraft cabins and Cathay Pacific for best transpacific airline.

1. Qatar Airways

2. Singapore Airlines

3. Cathay Pacific Airways

4. Turkish Airlines

5. Emirates

6. Etihad Airways

7. ANA All Nippon Airways
