Air Astana, the Kazakhstan flag carrier, is celebrating triple success at the 2014 Skytrax World Airline Awards, with a 4 Star rating, Best Airline Central Asia / India and Best Airline Staff Service Central Asia / India being achieved for the third successive year.

The awards ceremony took place at the UK’s Farnborough Airshow today.

Air Astana President Peter Foster with Zhanar Shayakhmetova, In-Flight Supervisor at Farnborough Air ShowThe World Airline Awards are the primary benchmarking tool for Passenger Satisfaction levels of airlines throughout the world, delivering a unique survey format based on analysis of business and leisure travellers, across all cabin travel types (First Class, Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy class).

Air travellers were surveyed by telephone, questionnaires and online about their experiences with airlines on the ground and in the air over a 10 month period. The survey measured passenger satisfaction across a wide range of performance indicators of airline front-line product and service, including check-in, boarding, onboard seat comfort, cabin cleanliness, food, beverages, in-flight entertainment and staff service. The survey covered over 200 airlines, from the largest international airlines to smaller domestic carriers.
