It’s similar to last year’s list, in which the top five were Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, ANA All Nippon Airways, Emirates, and Japan Airlines.

But the “best airlines of 2024” wasn’t the only award granted by SkyTrax. Other awards included the world’s best cabin crew (Singapore Airlines, based in Singapore), the world’s cleanest airline (Cathay Pacific Airlines, based in Hong Kong), and the best airline in Europe (Turkish Airlines). There was also an award given for the world’s best low-cost airline carrier. That prize went to Scoot Airlines, a subsidy of Singapore Airlines. It currently flies to 15 countries in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
