Turkish Airlines, the airline that flies to the most destinations worldwide, has been named Best Airline in Europe by Skytrax on the prestigious 2022 World Airline Awards. Turkish Airlines broke previous records after the biggest aviation crisis in history and set itself apart from its rivals with a strong performance throughout the year.
The 2022 World Airline Awards were held on September 23 in London’s famous Langham Hotel, and in addition to the Best Airline in Europe honor, the prosperous flag carrier received several other honors.
Turkish Airlines received two other significant prizes at the ceremony, including the Best Airline in Southern Europe and the World’s Best Business Class Catering, in addition to being chosen as the Best Airline in Europe by passengers from all around the world.
An online customer survey was conducted from September 2021 to August 2022 as part of the examination of the airlines to choose the recipient of the awards, and invitations were also extended to survey respondents from the survey database the previous year.
It was possible to complete the customer survey in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese. The 2021–2022 survey had 14.32 million eligible entries from over 100 different customer nationalities.
Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and Executive Committee Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat accepted the prizes and made the following remarks: “We are extremely glad to be with you again in this setting where our distinguished service approach has been praised on numerous occasions.
We at Turkish Airlines would like to extend our gratitude to both the Skytrax team, who carried out this review, and our esteemed customers for considering us deserving of these magnificent honors.
We continue to make strides towards our objective of making the Turkish Airlines brand the finest in the world by leveraging the unparalleled service we provide, which sets us apart from our rivals.
We congratulate Turkish Airlines on its accomplishment at the World Airline Awards. Winning the prize as the Best Airline in Europe is a wonderful achievement in what is one of the most competitive markets, said Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax.
Additionally, we are happy to see Turkish Airlines win the award for the Best Business Class Onboard Catering in the World, which reflects the high standards they were able to accomplish with DO&CO’s cooperation in all facets of the meals served on Turkish Airlines flights.
