We emerged tops in a report that measures airlines’ financial and operational performances, and we are once again voted the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline by our valued guests around the world in this Skytrax World Airline Survey!”
“We would like to thank all our guests for their support and their belief in us to provide opportunities for everyone to fly.
