Vacay for the Eid al Adha weekend? Why not fly with the third-best airline in the world?

According to the ratings released by Airline Ratings, an aviation safety and product rating website, Etihad Airways has bagged third place for the second time in a row!

With several green initiatives under its belt, the UAE’s national carrier has been commended for its commitment to sustainability, setting a benchmark for the aviation industry.

First place this year was snagged by Air New Zealand, knocking Qatar Airways to second place after holding top billing for two years.

The top five were rounded out by Korean Airlines and Singapore Airlines.

Emirates Airlines, one of the UAE’s flagship carriers came in tenth, a stark improvement on their performance from number 16 last year.
