Air New Zealand beats all the larger luxury airlines for best airline in the world. Here’s why.


AirlineRatings.com has just named Air New Zealand the best airline in the world for the second year now. It also won the award for the best premium economy class.

Air New Zealand elbowed Etihad Airways, Cathay Pacific, Qantas Airways, Emirates and Singapore Airlines out the way in achieving first place.

According to the website, Air New Zealand was chosen as number one on account of its in-flight innovations, record financial performance, operational safety, motivated staff and focus on the environment.

Editor-in-chief of AirlineRatings.com, Geoffrey Thomas, was quoted saying: “Quite simply, Air New Zealand is an airline of first choice. And given the airline’s location and the country’s size, its performance is even more remarkable.”
