Turkish Airlines have won the prestigious Best Airline in Europe for the ninth time by Skytrax, at what is seen as the Oscars of the aviation industry, the World Airline Awards.

The airline, which flies to more countries than any other, won also the World’s Best Business Class Catering and Best Airline in Southern Europe accolades during the awards event held at Fairmont Windsor Park. These awards are judged on results from independent surveys carried out by Skytrax.

These awards are the result of Turkish Airline’s high level of service quality across its extensive network, underscoring the airline’s dedication to providing a comfortable and stress-free travel experience for its passengers. They have also set the benchmark for in-flight dining and offering passengers a gastronomic journey above the clouds.

Receiving the awards at the ceremony, Bilal Ekşi, CEO of Turkish Airlines, stated: “We are delighted to receive these prestigious awards from Skytrax. Being named the Best Airline in Europe and in Southern Europe, and receiving recognition for our business class catering excellence is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team.

“As the Turkish Airlines family, we would like to thank our valued passengers, who deemed us worthy of these wonderful awards, and the Skytrax team, who put this evaluation into practice. With Turkish hospitality in our DNA, we remain committed to delivering an unmatched travel experience to our passengers and will continue to innovate and enhance our services.”

Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax, said: “We congratulate Turkish Airlines on being named the Best Airline in Europe, which for the ninth time is a remarkable achievement in such a competitive region, and demonstrates that they are a customer favourite. Turkish Airlines repeated earlier year successes by winning the award for the World’s Best Business Class Catering and the airline and its catering partner Turkish DO&CO should be very proud of this success.”

Through these awards, Turkish Airlines reaffirms its leading position in hospitality, service quality and extensive network, which boasts more countries than any other. With the addition of Melbourne route in March 2024, the national flag carrier’s network has expanded to six continents. The airline is also committed to sustainability in aviation, undertaking various projects to create a better world for future generations. Turkish Airlines continues to uphold its signature service quality, ensuring best-in-class travel experience for its passengers.
