Dubai's Emirates has been named the world's best airline in TripAdvisor's Travelers Choice Awards.
When the major travel site Tripadvisor included airlines as a category in its annual Travelers Choice Awards for the first time, Emirates was the big winner.
Emirates won the World's Best Airline award and also took first place in the Best Economy Class, Best First Class and Best Large Airline in the Middle East and Africa categories.
The ranking is based on reviews and ratings posted by travellers on Tripadvisor in the last 12 months.
- It's a great honour to be named the world's best airline, especially when the award is based on the reviews and opinions of our customers. We want to be the first choice for travellers, so we continue to develop products and improve service in all classes on board," says Tim Clark, Emirates' CEO.
Based in Dubai, Emirates is not only the world's best airline - it's also the world's largest. It flies to 155 destinations in 83 countries on six continents.
