Nearly one million flights were rated by passengers across more than 600 airlines from around the world using a scale covering seat comfort, in-flight service, food and beverages, entertainment system and Wi-Fi service.

Launched by air travel researchers APEX, the awards were based on third-party passenger reviews undertaken in partnership with TripIt.

Last August, Vietnam Airlines has become the only Vietnamese representative to break into a global ranking of 10 best carriers in the world thanks to seat comfort and quality of staff service by U.S. luggage storage company Bounce.

It leads the Vietnamese aviation market in terms of passengers with 18 million in 2022.
