Turkish Airlines Named Best in Europe Again

Recognised for exceptional service and in-flight dining.

Turkish Airlines, the airline that flies to more countries than any other, has been named Best Airline in Europe by Skytrax at the prestigious 2024 World Airline Awards, also known as the Oscars of the aviation industry. Held in London at the iconic Fairmont Windsor Park on 24 June 2024, the World Airline Awards saw several accolades presented to the successful flag carrier. In addition to being recognised as the Best Airline in Europe, Turkish Airlines won two other top awards at the ceremony, including the World's Best Business Class Catering and Best Airline in Southern Europe.

Based on results from independent surveys carried out by Skytrax, Turkish Airlines has been named the best airline both in Europe and Southern Europe. These awards highlight the carrier’s exceptional service quality across its extensive network, underscoring its dedication to providing a seamless and comfortable travel experience for its passengers. Continuing to set the benchmark for in-flight dining and offering passengers an unforgettable gastronomic journey above the clouds, Turkish Airlines has secured the World's Best Business Class Catering award.

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 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 for the ninth time. This remarkable achievement in such a competitive region demonstrates that they are a customer favourite. Turkish Airlines repeated earlier 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 airline. With the addition of the 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 a best-in-class travel experience for its passengers.
