On the award, APEX CEO Dr. Joe Leader stated: “In the world of elevated aviation experiences, Turkish Airlines soars above five-star airline status as a paragon of excellence winning as one of the only prestigious 2024 APEX World Class airlines in the world. Through rigorous and professionally executed audits across both economy and business class service, our team gleaned insightful revelations about their unwavering commitment to passenger experience, safety, and sustainability advancements. On my own Turkish Airlines flights this year, I have been captivated by their new suite business class on select A350 aircraft. Each of their new generation aircraft embody enhanced opulence and innovation. With the touch of a Turkish Airlines flying chef, every meal becomes an unparalleled culinary journey, reminiscent of candlelit soirées under a starry Anatolian sky. Yet, it’s their authentic and extravagant Turkish hospitality, a blend of warmth and luxury, that truly encapsulates the heart of their service. Bravo, Turkish Airlines, for crafting moments that transcend mere five star status as one of the very few APEX World Class airlines!”
