These 5 African airlines are among the World’s Top 100 Airlines 2019

Five African airlines emerged among the World’s Top 100 Airlines 2019, according to Skytrax latest rankings.

Ethiopian Airlines and South African Airways retained their positions as the best airlines on the continent.

No West African airlines made the world’s 100 best airlines.

Skytrax ranked airlines based on over 21 million survey responses from airline passengers and over 300 airlines are featured in the 2018/2019 survey results.

Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax said, “… All of today’s award-winning airlines are voted for by customers, and the focus of our annual survey is for travelers to make their own, personal choices as to which airlines they consider to be best.

“We operate the survey and awards in a 100% independent and impartial format according to the commitment we gave back in 1999, and whilst every winner may not be the favourite of everyone, those that disagree should understand that these are the Passenger’s Choice Awards.

Here’s a look at the five African airlines on the list of best 100 airlines in the world 2019:
