Air Canada Earns Passenger-Rated Five Star Global Airline Award at the APEX 2024 Awards

MONTREAL, Sept. 21, 2023 /CNW/ - Air Canada's continued commitment to excellence was recognized with a Five Star Global Airline Award at the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) 2024 Awards Ceremony held last night in Long Beach, California. It is the fifth time in six years the airline has been awarded an APEX Five Star rating which is based on customer feedback.

"On behalf of the more than 36,000 employees at Air Canada, we thank our customers and APEX for recognizing us with a Five Star Global Airline award. We have made significant investments in our digital, lounge and in-flight products and services, and we are delighted to welcome our customers onboard with an elevated level of comfort and convenience as they connect with families and friends, explore new cultures or continue to build businesses across Canada and our global network," said Mark Nasr, Air Canada's Executive Vice President, Marketing & Digital and President of Aeroplan.

The APEX Five Star and Four Star Airline Awards, formerly APEX Official Airline Ratings™, were created based on neutral, third-party passenger feedback and insights gathered through APEX's partnership with TripIt® from Concur®, the world's highest-rated travel-organizing app. For the 2024 Awards, nearly one million flights were rated by passengers across more than 600 airlines from around the world using a five-star scale. The APEX Five Star and Four Star Airline Awards are independently certified by a professional external auditing company.
