The Cleanest Airlines Have Been Unveiled

The Cleanest Airlines Have Been Unveiled
Jackie Reddy

Skytrax has revealed the globe’s cleanest carriers as part of its World’s Best Airline Cabin Cleanliness 2018 listings. ANA has taken the number one spot in the rankings, which saw passengers assess various parts of the airline cabin for cleanliness. The top spots were dominated by Asian carriers.

Neat freaks and germophobes take note: Skytrax has ranked the world’s cleanest carriers as part of its World’s Best Airline Cabin Cleanliness 2018 listings.

Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) took the top spot in the rankings, which, according to Skytrax, saw passengers compare, “…the standards and quality of cleanliness in the aircraft cabin for airlines.”

“Cleanliness and presentation of seat areas, tables, carpets, cabin panels and washrooms all contribute towards the final results,” it added.

Asian carriers dominated the rankings, with EVA Air, Asiana Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific Airways filling the next five consecutive spots.

Swiss International Air Lines and German flag carrier Lufthansa were the only two European airlines to make the top ten, while The Independent notes that, “The US fared poorly in this year’s awards, with no American airlines included in the 30 cleanest carriers.”

    Air Canada’s cabins are disgusting and certainly not clean. I agree their competition in North America is also terrible. There should not be a winner in North America; simply a general scolding.
