EVA Air Makes World’s Top 10 Airlines in the 2018 Skytrax World Airline Awards

Taiwan’s national airline, EVA Air, has ranked fifth in the World’s Top 10 Airlines in the 2018 Skytrax World Airline Awards.

The airline also claimed the title for World’s Best Airport Services and was certified as a Skytrax 5-Star airline for the third consecutive year. EVA Air also ranked second in Best Airline Staff in Asia, third in Best Airlines in Asia and fifth in the World’s Best Airline Cabin Crew.

EVA Air’s achievements were released on Tuesday following an analysis of extensive global passenger satisfaction surveys, described as “independent, impartial, and global”, on 335 airlines that were conducted from August 2017 to May 2018.

Through a press statement, EVA Air president Clay Sun expressed his hope that EVA Air could continue to pursue its goal on the back of the achievement.

“It is a great honor to be recognized by travelers from around the globe. We will never lose sight of our goal for EVA to be the very best. We aim to make every journey with us a delightful, relaxing experience for every passenger,” Sun said.

The rest of the top 10 was a familiar line up of respected airlines, dominated by Asian and Middle Eastern names. Third place went to ANA All Nippon Airways, fourth to Emirates, fifth to Taiwan’s EVA Air and sixth to Cathay Pacific. Lufthansa was the only European carrier to make the top 10, in seventh place. It was followed by China’s Hainan Airlines in eighth, Garuda Indonesia in ninth and Thai Airways in 10th.

Garuda, which has turned its service around since the early days of Skytrax, when it was banned from flying into European airspace, was presented with the prize for best cabin staff.
US airlines failed to pick up a single award. The best airline in North America was named as Air Canada, and the region’s best low-cost flier was WestJet, another Canadian carrier. Air France lived up to its nation’s reputation for culinary excellence with awards for best first class onboard catering, best first class comfort amenities and best first class lounge dining.
