Emirates wins ‘World Class Airline’ award

Popular News

Emirates has been named World Class Airline at The APEX Official Airline Ratings™ awards, becoming one of the first airlines to be recognized in this new award category that stands at the pinnacle of all APEX Passenger Choice awards.

In addition, Emirates was renewed as Five Star Airline by APEX, and clinched its fourth APEX Passenger Choice Award® for Best Entertainment at the APEX/IFSA Awards ceremony, the industry’s largest in-person event of the year, said a press release.

The new “World Class Airline” award considered not only an airline’s services and products, but also its health and safety, and sustainability efforts.

More than one million flights across nearly 600 airlines worldwide have been rated by passengers and independently certified by a professional external auditing company.

Like all APEX awards, the “World Class Airline” accolade was based on independently verified and audited ratings from over a million air travelers.

Last month, the airline announced a major investment in a retrofit program that will see 105 of its modern wide-body aircraft fitted with its latest Premium Economy product, which has proved very popular since it was first introduced in January 2020.

The APEX Official Airline Ratings™ is the first rating program in the world to score airlines entirely based on certified passenger feedback.
