Singapore Airlines named world's second best airline

Finnair has been named, for the eighth consecutive year, as Northern Europe's Best Airline at the World Airline Awards at the Paris Air Show.  Organised by Skytrax, the results are based on an independent survey of more than 19 million passengers from 105 countries that took place between August 2016 to May 2017 covering 325 airlines. "We are in that pre-evaporation phase where we're just seeing the bubbles", said Michael Kamel, airline advisor for PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Qatar Airways' prestigious award comes at a time when the gas-rich country is coping with an isolation attempt by neighbors Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt - who imposed a regional blockade on Qatar two weeks ago, accusing the state of supporting terrorism. It is also investing heavily in improving frontline services with new aircraft, seats and airport lounges.

Qatar Airways proudly supports a range of exciting worldwide and local initiatives dedicated to enriching the global community that it serves. The Qatar Airways Cargo fleet now includes eight Airbus 330Fs, 11 Boeing 777 freighters and one Boeing 747 freighter. The A380 flights include 26-inch entertainment screens, seats almost 2-feet wide and privacy partitions. The award ceremony was held in the French capital, Paris, during the International Paris Air Show.

Air Canada recently announced it's developing its own frequent flyer program, a move it's now saying is part of a larger digitization initiative. He added that it also helps to have hubs relatively close to the U.S. We are delighted to enter the Irish market and expand our global network of more than 150 destinations with the addition of the great city of Dublin. CNN Money points out executive pod seats that recline to flat beds and 21-inch entertainment screens could have something to do with it too.

The world's best airlines ranking for the year 2017 has been announced and Qatar Airways has bee declared the victor, taking the number one spot from Emirates.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has re-clinched the No. 2 position in the Skytrax World Airline Awards rankings, according to an announcement on the World Airline Awards website.

The show has become a regular event during the Paris Air Show, which is held every two years at Le Bourget Airport, and at the Farnborough International Air Show in the United Kingdom.
