KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 24 (Bernama) -- AirAsia has been crowned the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2022 for the 13th consecutive year.
Capital A chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said the year 2022 feels more special than previous years as voters supported the company despite the most difficult past few years triggered by COVID-19.
“Finally, I see blue skies ahead once again. We have survived, we have rebuilt and we are recovering to deliver greater value and choice than ever before,” he said in a statement today.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob also congratulated AirAsia on the award, saying that the airline has been a trailblazer in revolutionising low-cost travel in Malaysia and Asean, contributing significant tourism and economic benefits to our great nation.
“This is indeed a major milestone not just for AirAsia, but for Malaysia as well,” he said.
Meanwhile, Skytrax chief executive officer Edward Plaisted said AirAsia redefined low-cost air travel in Asia and despite the recent post-pandemic challenges, continues to be a firm favourite with customers.
“Winning the award for the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline and an extraordinary 13th time is a fantastic achievement, and we congratulate all the members of the AirAsia family on this momentous occasion,” he said.
The Skytrax awards were decided by a survey of 14.3 million customers of over 100 nationalities who reviewed over 300 airlines from September 2021 to August 2022.
