Turkish Airlines waives Skytrax World Airline audit
Last day, Turkish Airlines made the decision to cancel the Skytrax World Airline audit. It will continue to improve its services and receive direct feedback from passengers.
On 19 June, Turkish Airlines announced that it is giving up the Skytrax World Airline audit. Skytrax is an organization in the United Kingdom that analyzes hundreds of airlines and airports. Its rankings are renowned worldwide. Skytrax conducts passenger surveys and evaluates airlines based on hundreds of criteria.
Skytrax ranked airlines and airports by number of stars. According to this classification, Air Korio is the only airline rated at one star, and ANA All Nippon Airways; Asiana Airlines; Cathay Pacific Airways; Etihad Airways; EVA Air; Garuda Indonesia; Hainan Airlines; Lufthansa; Qatar Airways; Singapore Airlines are the only 5 stars.

According to SkyTrax's ratings, Turkish Airlines has 4 stars. Ground and on-board services were evaluated. The comfort, the menu, the quality of the seats, etc. were analyzed. At the same time, Skytrax also evaluates tangential services through the site, the application, etc.
The fact that the Turkish carrier gives up the audit raises some question marks. Do we understand that Turkish Airlines no longer agrees with the Skytrax World Airline audit? According to the statement issued by Turkish Airlines, it wanted to mention that it will develop its services and quality based on the feedback received directly from the passengers.
At the same time, we think it's a powerful shot for Skytrax. Turkish Airlines is one of the largest airlines in the world, having the largest operational network. Currently, TK flies to 300 from destinations around the world.
And we remind you that, 6 years in a row (2011-2016), Turkish Airlines has been designated by SkyTrax as the best airline in Europe. In 2017, the ranking has changed again Lufthansa received 5 stars and the title of the best airline in Europe.
Is this also one of the reasons why Turkish Airlines has decided to abandon the Skytrax World Airline audit?
