It is a strong recognition for both the management and all of their front-line staff who contributed to the success of the Ethiopian Airlines customer experience.

‘’ The World Airline Awards are independent and impartial, introduced in 1999 to provide a customer satisfaction study that was truly global. Travelers across the world vote in the largest airline passenger satisfaction survey to decide the award winners. Media around the world as “the Oscars of the aviation industry” refer to the awards.

The World Airline Awards survey operated for 23 months (September 2019 to July 2021), and the 2021 Awards represent a mix of more normal travel times combined with some travel during the global pandemic.

Over 100 customer nationalities participated in the survey, with the 2021 Awards based on 13.42 million eligible survey entries counted in the final results. Survey entries were screened to identify IP and user information, with duplicate, suspect or ineligible entries deleted. More than 350 airlines are featured.
