AirlineRatings.com editors, some of the most experienced and award-winning in the world, look for a consistent level of service, innovation and staff engagement from each of the top potential TOP25 contenders.
According to AirlineRatings.com editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas, "we are focused on leadership and airlines that innovate to make a real difference to the passenger experience."
Airlineratings.com was developed to provide all interested parties, anywhere in the world, with a single place to go for all airline related information, and is formed by a team of aviation editors, who have thoroughly researched almost every airline in the world.
The airline rating system uses a scale of one to seven stars in terms of safety, with seven being the highest rating. For each airline, information is provided on the country of origin, the Company code, the booking URL and information on the onboard seating chart.
The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits by aviation governing bodies, the main associations, as well as the airlines' own safety data. Each airline has an itemised safety rating so it is possible to see exactly how it is rated.
Over 360 of the airlines analysed on AirlineRatings.com, carrying 99% of passengers worldwide, have a product rating.
