According to AirlineRatings Editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas, all these airlines are standouts in the industry and are at the forefront of safety, innovation and the operational excellence.

“Vietjet has a very modern fleet of aircraft and operationally is now up there with the very best. That is great news for the traveling public in and tourists in Vietnam and the region,” said Mr. Thomas.

Earlier, AirlineRatings awarded Vietjet the “Best Ultra Low-Cost Airline for 2020”.

Other carriers which made the list include Ryanair, EasyJet, Frontier, Wizz, and Westjet.

In making its evaluation, AirlineRatings takes into account a comprehensive range of factors including records of safety compliance and incident handling. Especially for this year, the airline’s COVID-19 prevention rating is also taken into consideration.
