At the 2022 Skytrax World Airline Awards, the trusted UK-based airline and airport review site revealed the top airlines of 2022.
Qatar took home the first place prize. It wasn’t a complete shock given that the airline has won the award seven times since 1999 and they took home the top prize from AirlineRatings.com earlier this year. Still, it’s an especially big feat to take home so many awards in a year that’s been chock-full of travel chaos.
Qatar Airways took home eight more awards and was especially recognized for their Business class. Singapore Airlines landed in second place and swept the First Class categories while Emirates took home third and dominated in the Economy Class awards.
Delta was the leading US airline, taking home six awards. Ryanair took home an award from the Skytrax ceremony for the first time when they were named the Best Low-Cost Airline in Europe.
The rankings were calculated based on more than 14 million customer surveys in over 100 countries between September 2021 and August 2022.
