Capital A Chief Executive Officer Tony Fernandes formally received the prestigious award, decided from a survey of 14.3 million customers from September 2021 to August 2022, at the Langham Hotel in London on Friday.

“We did it again! This year feels more special than previous years, as voters supported us despite the most difficult past few years triggered by Covid. The fact we are back in the sky is incredible in itself with no government handouts or big business benefactors and virtually no flying for close to two years," Fernandes said.

“My sincere gratitude goes to the Skytrax organisers, to the more than 700 million guests who have flown with us and to those who have chosen to vote for us in these passenger’s choice awards time and time again. Last but not least, I’d like to dedicate this award to my fantastic team of Allstars, whose unwavering can-do spirit and attitude has led us this far."

“If there is one silver lining of the past few years, we have used the downtime in flying so we can return stronger than ever. Just a few days ago, we had record day sales, and using our data and our tremendous brand, we are now able to provide our guests with a complete travel ecosystem where they can enjoy travel, e-commerce, logistics and fintech from our travel and lifestyle platform."

“Finally I see blue skies ahead once again. We have survived, we have rebuilt and we are recovering to deliver greater value and choice than ever before.”

To celebrate the international recognition, AirAsia launched a PHP13 one-way base fare promo which runs today until October 2, 2022. The promo includes many leisure favorite markets including Bohol, Boracay, Cebu, Puerto Princesa, and international destinations Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Hong Kong, Seoul, Bali and Bangkok from PHP413 to PHP1,913.

AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said: “This recognition is both an honour and a reminder to us all in AirAsia to never rest on our laurels. Our guests can be assured of our commitment  to do better each day in all of our areas of operations. We look forward to expanding our market in the Philippines in the years to come so that Filipinos will have the best flight options, best value deals, and ultimately world’s best service as evidenced by our stellar track record of 13 years with Skytrax.”
