For the frequent travelers among you we’ve put together this list of the best airlines in the world. What airlines are the best airlines and where do they come from? It’s really simple actually, you can discount any airline coming from Europe and certainly those coming from the US. The best airlines in the world are located either in Asia or in the Middle East with the Kiwi carrier Air New Zealand making the only exception.
Especially the airlines originating from the Gulf region like Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways are going full steam ahead and are quickly conquering the world. Not strange at all as they definitely offer more bang for your buck. Below is the list of the best 8 airlines in the world. Indonesian carrier Garuda may be a surprise to you but they already won the prize for best economy class on Skytrax last year. I hope this list makes it a little easier for you to pick an airline next time you’re going on a trip.
1. Singapore Airlines
The carrier from Singapore with its famous Singapore Girls has been a travelers favorite since the beginning.
2. Qatar Airways
The new A380 business class cabin of Qatar Airways, not bad at all I’d say! The airline with its base in Doha is one of the few five star airlines in the world. Qatar Airways offers exceptional inflight service and has one of the youngest fleets in the business.
3. Etihad Airlines.
Originating from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. This airline recently took delivery of its first Airbus A380 which has the most luxurious and spacious first class in the world. It’s called The Residence, it offers 3 rooms and comes with a private butler. Watch the video below and be blown away!

Cathay Pacific from Hong Kong is also a long time favorite. Top notch service, great crews and delicious food make Cathay a safe bet for your next trip to South East Asia.
6. Air New Zealand
From New Zealand with love, this airline makes you totally feel at home. Air New Zealand crews are exceptional, I’ve never met friendlier crews than on Air New Zealand.
