A Skytrax poll of the world’s top 100 airlines has ranked Bangkok Airways 27th. Whilst not being in the top 10 ranked airlines in the world, and known in Thailand for its full service and ’boutique’ business model, the ranking is an improvement on last year’s survey.

As part of its survey, the aviation consultancy firm looked at more than 350 carriers worldwide. Bangkok Airways has moved up two places, having been ranked 29th last year.

The family-owned carrier also took top place in a list of the world’s best regional airlines – the 8th year in a row it has done so. It was also ranked 9th in a list of Asia’s best carriers.

Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, Bangkok Airways president, has welcomed the accolade.

“This recognition is a testament to the unwavering dedication and hard work of our entire team. Our commitment to delivering a superior travel experience remains steadfast, and we will continue to innovate and enhance our services to meet and exceed the expectations of our passengers.”

Bangkok Airways was not the only Thai carrier to improve its ranking, with Thai Airways going up 7 places, from 40th last year to 33rd this year. Thai Airways was also ranked 9th for the best cabin crew.

This year, Qatar Airlines took the top spot in the world’s top 100 airlines, moving up from the number 2 slot last year. Swapping places with Qatar Airlines is Singapore Airlines, which came in at number 2 this year after taking the top spot last year.

The top 2 are followed by Emirates, All Nippon Airways and Cathay Pacific Airways.

Of this year’s World’s Top 100 Airlines, the top 10…
