Best budget airlines in world: AirAsia tops, Indigo 10th in new Skytrax list

Best budget airlines in world: Aviation rating agency Skytrax has said AirAsia is the best budget airline in the world. Air Asia has bagged this position consecutively for the ninth time. The airline was one of many presented the award at a ceremony during the 2017 Paris Airshow. According to BusinessInsider, AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes said in a statement, “We take the world champion title seriously and we will strive to continue to improve for both our guests and shareholders. Over the last 15 years we have created a great brand and over the next 15, we want to move towards One AirAsia, a truly (Southeast Asian) airline.”
This was result of the Skytrax survey which was formed from impressions of 19.87 million travelers from 105 different countries. It covers more than 325 airlines, based on 49 parameters ranging from boarding procedures to comfort of the seats and service quality. Fernandes and his team have worked hard for 15 years to turn a small, failed, state-owned airline in one a multi-national aviation juggernaut, according to BusinessInsider. A responsive customer service, friendly cabin crew, and efficient operation was what got Air Asia the spot.
The other nine airlines are Norwegian, Virgin America, Jetstar Airways, AirAsia X, Azul Brazilian Airlines, Southwest Airlines and IndiGo Airlines
