Turkish Airlines ‘Best Airline in Europe’ for Sixth Consecutive Year

Turkish Airlines has been chosen as ‘Best Airline in Europe’ for the sixth consecutive year in the 2016 Skytrax World Airlines Awards. As the carrier that flies to more countries than any other, Turkish Airlines is openly appreciative of feedback from passengers all over the world.

Six years running is a real accolade and demonstrates Turkish Airlines’ continued commitment to the passenger satisfaction and development within the industry.

The independent survey evaluates traveller experiences across a wide range of airport services and then evaluates key performance indicators – from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and immigration right through to departure at the gate. This year’s awards were based on over a million questionnaires completed by nationalities worldwide. The survey covered 550 airports worldwide and consequently unveiling an unrivalled perception of the airline industry across the globe.

Turkish Airlines picked up four awards this year: ‘Best Airline in Europe’, Best Airline in Southern Europe’, ‘Best Business Class Dining Lounge’, and ‘Best Business Class On-Board Catering’.

M. İlker Aycı, Turkish Airlines’ Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, said: “The Skytrax World Airline Awards are the result of the largest airline passenger satisfaction survey in the world. Every year it delights us that millions of travellers again recognise Turkish Airlines as the ‘Best Airline in Europe’. The airline continues to be renowned for its seamless services, including our dining and inflight entertainment experiences. The award marks a continued period of success for us.”
