Consumer aviation website Skytrax has announced the 2019 World Airline Awards.

The World Airline Awards were introduced by Skytrax in 1999. The awards are given based on the world’s largest, annual airline passenger satisfaction survey.

The award winning airlines are voted for by customers. The focus of Skytrax’s annual survey is for travelers to make their own, personal choices as to which airlines they consider to be the best.

The Skytrax World Airline Awards are described as “the Oscars of the aviation industry.”

This year, more than 100 customer nationalities participated in the survey, with 21.7 million eligible entries from airline passengers counted in the results.

Over 300 airlines are featured in this year’s survey results. The online survey operated from September 2018 to May 2019.

Customers nominated their favorite airline or airline they considered to be best, and ranked their satisfaction on a scale of 1 to 5 for various aspects of their travel experience, across both the airport and onboard environments.

These include cabin services, ground services and onboard product services.

No U.S. carrier featured in the top ten rankings this year, while Lufthansa was the only European airline to be ranked among the top ten airlines.
