SIA was also awarded a bunch of other accolades in the 2017 World Airline Awards, such as Best Airline in Asia, Best Premium Economy Onboard Catering and World's Best Business Class seat.

Since 2001, the award for "Airline of the Year" has bounced around frequently; only three times has the same airline won Skytrax's prestigious honor in back-to-back years. Every year, travellers from around the world take part in the largest airline passenger satisfaction survey, a global benchmark of airline excellence, to determine the winners.

As the most respected global airline passenger survey organization in the industry, Skytrax evaluates traveler experiences across different airports with service and product key performance indicators. The awards were handed out at the International Paris Air Show. Customer-focused initiatives have included an expanded global network (Air Canada is one of only a few airlines in the world to serve all six inhabited continents), and new worldwide, domestic and U.S. Maple Leaf Lounges.

Asia's largest low-priced carrier won the accolades at the 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards in the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace at Le Bourget Airport.

It is no doubt a happy piece of news for the Doha-headquarted airline, as Qatar has faced much political trouble lately - the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and Saudi Arabia have cut diplomatic ties with it - with the regional aviation firms feeling a knock-on effect.

AirAsia (KLSE:AIRA) is the World's Best Low-Cost Airline for the ninth year in a row. It reclaimed the honour after having finished second in 2016 when its rival airline, Emirates, based in Dubai, won the honour.

The world's best airlines ranking for the year 2017 has been announced and Qatar Airways has bee declared the victor, taking the number one spot from Emirates. The Best Airline of 2017 award for Qatar Airways seems to have come at the right time considering the ongoing crisis in the Gulf nation.

The significance of SKYTRAX awards is backed up by the monitor's independent judging process, excluding external corporate influences altogether. The airline operates a fleet of 47 on mainly Boeing aircraft.
