Emirates has been named the Best Airline in the World at the inaugural TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards for Airlines. In addition to claiming the prize, the airline was the biggest winner with four other awards including Best Major Airline-Middle East & Africa, Best Economy Class, Best First Class and World’s Best Airlines-Top 10.

This is the first year TripAdvisor has introduced a category for airlines in its Travelers’ Choice Awards. The awards highlight the world’s top carriers based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for airlines worldwide gathered over a 12-month period.

“We are honoured to be named the Best Airline in the World at the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards for Airlines 2017," said Emirates president Sir Tim Clark.

"The fact that the awards are a result of unbiased reviews and feedback speaks to our commitment to deliver a superior travel experience for our customers. We want travellers to continue making Emirates their first choice whenever they think to travel," he added.

Emirates has recently been hit with the electronics ban on its US routes. The popular airline has introduced another service to mitigate the inconvenience of the recent ban on electronic devices on board US-bound flights.
