The latest ranking of the world’s top 100 airlines does not give for good reading to Kenya Airways.

The national carrier has taken up position 91 in the World’s Top 100 Airlines 2017 in an awards ceremony held at Paris Air Show last week.

This is a slight drop in the airline’s ranking last year where it took up position 85.

The World’s Top 100 airlines are ranked in accordance with how airline customers around the world vote.

Taking up top position was Qatar Airways followed by Singapore Airways which was last year ranked at 3 position.

Japan’s largest airline, ANA All Nippon Airways took 3 spot while Dubai’s Emirates Airline, which was the best carrier in 2016, dropped to position 4.

The awards are most coveted quality accolades for the airline industry, often referred to as "the Oscars of the aviation industry", and are a global benchmark of airline excellence.

Travellers across the globe take part each year in the world’s largest airline passenger satisfaction survey to decide the winners.

Skytrax Survey and Awards Methodology is fully transparent, and the processes remain 100% independent with no payment by any airline or other outside organization for any aspect of the customer survey or Awards presentation event.

Over 320 airlines were covered by Skytrax but only a list of top 100 airlines were published.

Meanwhile, Ethiopian Airlines came in at position 48 while South African Airways claimed 49th spot. Ethiopian Airlines, however won Sktrax’s World Airline Award for Best Airline in Africa.
