Norwegian was today named ‘World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline’ for the fifth consecutive year at the prestigious Skytrax World Airline Awards in Paris.
Norwegian has secured a major award at the 2019 Skytrax World Airline Awards, the leading international airline rating system as voted on by the travelling public, who evaluates airlines worldwide. For the fifth year in a row, passengers have voted Norwegian the "World's Best Long-Haul Low-Cost Airline". Norwegian was recognised for setting the standard in low-cost travel by providing outstanding service combined with a high-quality product while operating one of the youngest fleets in the industry.
Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian CEO, said: “It is a great honour to be recognised as the ‘World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline’ for the fifth consecutive year at the Skytrax 2019 World Airline Awards. I personally would like to thank all our passengers who voted for us and my dedicated colleagues in the air and on the ground at Norwegian who continuously strive to deliver innovation and service throughout our customers’ journey. This award proves that the global travellers appreciate low fares, friendly service and new, more environmentally friendly aircraft.”
Edward Plaisted of Skytrax said: "This award is a fabulous recognition for all the Norwegian front-line staff who are responsible for serving customers, both in the airport and onboard environment. Norwegian has become a customer favourite with its long-haul low-cost concept and this award is a great customer recognition of their standards."
These latest awards add to several other accolades that Norwegian has already received in 2019 including “Europe’s Leading Low-Cost Airline” at the World Travel Awards and “Best Low-Cost Carrier in Europe” at the Passenger Choice Awards.
