Two Japanese carriers are in the world’s top 10 airlines of 2024

Tokyo: Along with having the world’s cleanest airport, Japan continues to maintain its high standards in the airline industry with two of the country’s major carriers ranked as some of the best internationally.

This year’s World Airline Awards by Skytrax just named two Japanese carriers in the world’s top ten airlines list: All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL).

Regarded as the Oscars of the aviation industry, the latest World Airline Awards based its ranking on data compiled from Skytrax’s annual airline passenger satisfaction survey between September 2023 and May 2024. All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines have once again made the top ten out of more than 350 airlines included in this year’s survey.

ANA came in fourth place this year, trailing behind Qatar Airways (No 1), Singapore Airlines (No 2) and Emirates (No 3). Japan Airlines was ranked in sixth place behind Cathay Pacific at No 5.

Comparing this year’s results with that of last year, ANA has moved down one spot from its third place ranking in 2023. Japan Airlines also took a slide by one spot as it was in fifth place last year.

Aside from the overall ranking, ANA was awarded for having the World’s Best Airport Services, Best Airline Staff in Asia and Best Cabin Crew in Japan. On the other hand, Japan Airlines was ranked first for having the world’s Best Premium Economy Class and Best Premium Economy Class Airline Seat.
