Turkish Airlines scored a resounding success at the 2014 Skytrax World Airline Awards, with air travelers voting the airline as the “Best Airline in Europe” for the fourth year in a row.
The results of the 2014 World Airline Awards were announced recently during the Farnborough International Airshow 2014 held in the vicinity of London, UK.
Turkish Airlines won a total of four awards at the 2014 Skytrax World Airline Awards.
“Best Airline in Europe,” “Best Airline in Southern Europe,” “Best Business Class Catering” and “Best Business Class Lounge Dining” awards were presented to Turkish Airlines’ CEO, Temel Kotil Ph.D. by CEO of Skytrax, Edward Plaisted.
The awards mark a continued period of success for the airline which has seen passenger numbers rise by 16.8 percent so far in 2014 compared to the same period last year. This follows the airline being ranked as a 4-star airline in 2007 and joining Star Alliance in 2008. While keeping its 4-star airline title again in 2008, Turkish Airlines was named “Best Airline in Southern Europe.”
This year’s awards were based on the results of over 18 million passenger surveys, with more than 100 customer nationalities from over 160 countries participating, covering 245 airlines.
