“The airline has done the impossible – brought top class travel to the region at amazing prices and ultimate flight experiences,” he said.
The AirlineRatings.com Airline Excellence Awards, judged by six editors with over 180 years’ industry experience, combines major safety and government audits, with 12 key criteria – up from nine last year – that include: fleet age, passenger reviews profitability, investment rating, product offerings, and staff relations.

It is her ambition to grow Vietjet, which she founded in 2011 into an international airline.
