It’s time to get UPdated!

Travelling around the world is definitely an awesome and exciting adventure for anyone. It’s even more special when they experience high-class accommodation as they criss-cross different parts of the world.

To really travel in style and comfort, choose from among the top five best airlines worldwide. According to the recent airline statistics reported by Business Insider, Asia dominates the list. The statistics are taken from the top 20 best airlines of Skytrax’s rankings.

Skytrax’s choices for top airlines in 2017 are based on the impressions of 19.87 million travelers from 105 different countries from (more than) 325 airlines worldwide. The survey measured 49 parameters ranging from boarding procedures, comfortability, and overall quality of service.

To see the results, here are the 5 airlines that recognize as the best in the world:

1. Qatar Airways
This is not the first time for the airline to be recognized for its best flight services. Qatar Airways won for the 4th time as best airline worldwide (it also won in 2011, 2012, and 2015).
According to the survey, the Doha-based airline was commended by the reviewers for its overall comfort and in-flight entertainment.

2. Singapore Airlines
A lot of reviewers admired the airline for its “famously pleasant journey”. Singapore Airlines attendants are trained to serve and treat travelers with utmost caring and respect.
The airline is also famous for their personal televisions with plenty of entertainment options, hot towels served before take-off, and some perks in its economy class.

3. All Nippon Airways (ANA)
It is the largest international carrier in Japan and famous on its slide-forward-style, reclining seats (this setup increases overall privacy), and power and USB outlets. ANA earned high praise for its cleanliness, service, and safety. Aside from its positive march towards the top rankings, it also won as World’s Best Airport Services and Best Airline Staff Service in Asia.

4. Emirates
Dubai’s Emirates has consistently–over the past 30 years–been recognized as one of the world’s premier long-haul carriers.
The airline was hailed for its unique state-of-the-art entertainment system and services; such as its wide selection of video and music options, as well as shows and sporting events broadcast on television. No wonder it received Skytrax’s award for Best In-Flight Entertainment.

5. Cathay Pacific Airways
The Hong Kong based airline was recognized as fifth best airline worldwide. Reviewers gave high marks for its seat comfort, service quality, and in-flight entertainment.
Even though it fell one notch from last year’s spot, Cathay Pacific Airways retains its place as one of the Pacific Rim’s most respected carriers.

Overall, an airline’s goal is to give the travelers high-end quality of comfort, flight services, and entertainment. And an airline’s success it not possible without the best input of the people behind the recognition. Each award is a salute to the peerless and unconditional passion and hard work of every pilot, stewards, flight attendees, and flight crews. Together, they provide the traveler with the best service and accommodation in their journey through the skies.
