It’s 13 in a row for AirAsia, the low-cost airline that has been crowned the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2022.
Considered the global benchmark of airline excellence, the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2022 is decided by a survey of 14.3 million customers of over 100 nationalities who reviewed over 300 airlines from September 2021 to August 2022.
Congratulating AirAsia on the award, Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said: “This is indeed a great milestone not just for AirAsia, but also for Malaysia as well. AirAsia has been a trailblazer in revolutionising low-cost travel in Malaysia and Asean, contributing significant tourism and economic benefits to our great nation.”
Accepting the award, CEO of Capital A, Tony Fernandes added “This year feels more special than previous years, as voters supported us despite the most difficult past few years triggered by Covid. The fact we are back in the sky is incredible in itself with no big business benefactors and virtually no flying for close to two years.
“AirAsia redefined low-cost air travel in Asia and despite the recent post-pandemic challenges, continues to be a firm favourite with customers. Winning the award for the World’s Best Low Cost Airline and an extraordinary 13th time is a fantastic achievement, and we congratulate all the members of the AirAsia family on this momentous occasion said Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax
