Jet2.com has been named Europe’s Best Regional & Low Cost Airline at the inaugural TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for airlines.
In addition to Jet2.com, the UK is home to three other airlines named in Europe’s top ten Regional & Low Cost Airlines; Monarch, Flybe and Thomson took fourth, eighth and ninth place respectively.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We are thrilled and proud to be named by TripAdvisor as both the Best UK Airline and the Best Low-Cost Airline across all of Europe. What makes the accolades so special is the fact that they are based on customer experience and feedback, making the recognition even more rewarding.
“The fact that we continue to win awards is no coincidence. Everybody at Jet2.com strives to give our customers the very best experience possible and I would like to pay tribute to the brilliant Jet2.com team for doing that day in day out.”
The first annual Travellers’ Choice awards for airlines recognised travellers’ favourite carriers around the globe. Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of airline reviews and ratings submitted by travellers worldwide, over a 12-month period.
TripAdvisor airline reviews launched in July 2016, giving travellers a platform to share their candid feedback – both good and bad – about all major airlines around the globe.
“The fact that four UK airlines have been named in Europe’s top 10 regional and low cost speaks volumes for the competitiveness of the airline industry here. With more and more passengers sharing feedback about their flight experiences on TripAdvisor, there is every reason to think standards can continue to improve,” said Katherine Clark, Regional Business Development Director, EMEA, TripAdvisor Flights.
In the Major Airlines category, Virgin Atlantic ranked sixth overall in Europe. Emirates was named best airline in the world.
