Japan’s All Nippon Airlines (ANA) has been voted the world’s cleanest airline. The annual airline survey conducted by Skytrax shows how passengers rate airlines’ hygiene levels. As part of the World Airline Awards, it asked its database of 24.45 million customers to rate the standards and quality of cleanliness based on their flying experiences, taking into consideration seat areas, tables, carpets, cabin panels and toilets.
This is one of many accolades bestowed on ANA, which has consistently won overall 5-Star ratings. ANA remains the only 5-Star rated airline in Japan, and one of very few such airlines around the world. Asian carriers dominated the cleanliness league table, with Japan’s All Nippon Airlines (ANA) winning top spot, followed by Taiwan’s Eva Air and South Korea’s Asiana Airlines.
The U.S. and U.K. didn’t fare so well, with none of their airlines making the top 30. Domestic flight companies also failed to reach a top ranking.
