The cleanest airline in the world is..............

SkyTrax World Airline Awards has lifted the veil on the top 30 airlines in the world and there are some that may surprise you on the higher regions of the chart.  Whilst you almost certainly wouldn't expect to find a budget low-cost-carrier to big high in the cleanliness stakes, you might expect a legacy airline such as British Airways to be up in the top 20 if not the top 10,  but BA are nowhere to be seen!

To get the top airlines, passengers rated 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.


Leading the field is ANA All Nippon Airways, followed by EVA Air, Asiana Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Japan Airlines.

The first European airline to appear in the rankings is SWISS taking the eighth place, whilst its big brother, Lufthansa comes in at tenth. Perhaps a surprise to some is that there are no North American carriers in the top thirty, although if you're a regular traveller, you might not be surprised at all.

Here's the full top 30!
