Skytrax’s annual World Airline Awards have been revealed and, naturally, Emirates made the list.
The Dubai-based airline ranked fifth on the list, missing out to Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific, Japan’s ANA All Nippon Airways and Singapore Airlines, who have been bumped off first place from last year. Whilst Asian airlines reigned supreme, the only European airline in the top 10 is Lufthansa in ninth place.
But that’s not the only accolade Emirates was awarded with. The five-star service also ranked number one for Best Airline Inflight Entertainment (and if you've ever browsed through ICE, you'll totally know why).
Over 4,000 channels of inflight entertainment. You get so much more on Emirates Economy. #FlyEmiratesFlyBetter https://t.co/7RsAEOy2dV pic.twitter.com/mTjw4Gy5b0— Emirates Airline (@emirates) June 23, 2019
They also ranked sixth for Best First Class Suite after Etihad, who came fourth globally and first in the region.
The annual award ceremony, which took place at Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace du Bourget at the Paris Air Show, celebrates airline leaders and top airline management from across the globe.
