    Qatar Airways has been voted the world's best airline for a record seventh time at the 2022 Skytrax World Airline Awards, winning the prestigious airline of the year 2022. The top 40 airlines in 2022 reflect a number of changes from earlier year ratings, and Skytrax attribute part of this to the varying operational levels of some airlines due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions during the period of the customer survey.

Vistara also received two awards, the Best Airline in India and Southern Asia and Best Airline Staff Service in India and Southern Asia. Here are the top 10 airlines of 2022.
