The airlines are ranked with focus on two main areas. They must have a seven-star safety rating and demonstrate leadership in innovation for passenger comfort, explains AirlineRatings.com.
According to AirlineRatings.com Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas, "We are focused on leadership and airlines that innovate to make a real difference to the passenger experience."
"Of course, right now the airline industry is under unprecedented pressure as it strives to recover from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic," he added.
Qatar Airways topped the list because of its "cabin innovation, passenger service, and its commitment to continue to operate throughout the COVID pandemic," revealed the website.
Air New Zealand which secured the second position "is always at the forefront of airline awards because of its constant innovation and industry leadership", the article on AirlineRatings.com explains.
Etihad Airways, earning the third spot, won the Best Environmental Airlines Award for its leadership in the 787 Greenliner programme.
