Turkish Airlines has raked in a handful of awards, including Best Airline in Europe – for the third time, at the prestigious Skytrax World Airline Awards held at the Paris Air Show this week, confirming its position as one of the world’s leading airlines.
Turkey’s national carrier, which has embarked on a huge expansion programme in recent years, also won awards for Best Airline in Southern Europe – for the second year running – and Best Business Class Onboard Catering. Just as significant though was the airline being voted as one of the top 10 Best Airlines in the world – it came ninth, while this year’s winner was Emirates.
“Our thanks go to our Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who made this resounding success possible with his vision and policies,” said CEO of Turkish Airlines Temel Kotil in Paris, adding that being the number one airline company in Europe was of enormous significance as the continent represented one third of the three billion annual air travellers worldwide.
A member of the Star Alliance, Turkish Airlines has the world’s fourth largest flight network, spanning 229 destinations in 100 countries. As a world recognised brand associated with air travel excellence in the 21st Century, Skytrax has become a world leader in ranking aviation services by providing unique Audit and Service Benchmarking programmes products to the world airline and airport industry across the globe.
