Aeroflot – Russian Airlines has been recognised as a 2018 Five Star Global Airline in APEX´s Official Airline Ratingsâ¢, the company said.
The honour was bestowed upon Aeroflot yesterday at the APEX EXPO Awards in Long Beach, California.
The Official Airline Ratingsâ¢ are the industry´s first rating program based solely on verified passenger feedback. APEX (the Airline Passenger Experience Association) is a four-decade-old non-profit membership organisation comprised of the world´s airlines, industry suppliers, major media groups and related aviation industry leaders that is dedicated to elevating the passenger experience.
Aeroflot was recognised during the APEX EXPO Awards Ceremony in Long Beach, hosted by The Points Guy, Brian Kelly.
To compile the Official Airline Ratingsâ¢, APEX sought an industry-neutral technology partner that would serve in collecting verified itineraries validated by geo-location and certified by external auditors. Leveraging the TripIt mobile app used by millions of air travellers worldwide, the Official Airline Ratingsâ¢ analysed passenger feedback on 470 airlines worldwide through 31 July 2017. Airline travellers were validated against confirmed itineraries and geo-location on mobile devices.
