Singapore Airlines has been ranked as the world's best airlines in a list compiled by travel planning website TripAdvisor.

According to TripAdvisor's 2018 Travelers' Choice Awards, Singapore is the best airlines in the world, followed by Air New Zealand at No. 2 and Emirates at No. 3.

"The award is a validation of the hard work and dedication of our thousands of staff all around the world, who focus their attention every day on ensuring that Singapore Airlines remains competitive on a global level," Singapore Airlines' CEO Goh Choon Phong said in a statement.

Southwest Airlines is the best carrier in the North America, with a No. 6 position in the global rankings.

"It's an honor to receive several TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice awards for Airlines including being the only U.S.-based carrier named a top ten airline in the world," Ryan Green, Southwest Airlines' chief marketing officer, added in the statement.

Japan Airlines and EVA Air rounded off the top 5 positions. While Jet2.com, Qatar Airways, Azul and Korean Air, came in at No. 7,8,9 and 10 positions, respectively.

TripAdvisor said the best airlines list were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of airline reviews and ratings submitted by travelers worldwide, over a 12-month period on TripAdvisor Flights.

"We're thrilled to recognize the global TripAdvisor community's favorite airlines and shine a spotlight on the carriers around the world that provide the very best flying experiences," said Bryan Saltzburg, senior vice president and general manager for TripAdvisor Flights.
