The 10 cleanest airlines in the world revealed

Planes, as many of us know, are not the most sanitary of places.

As disgusting as it is to admit, a bunch of people sitting in a stuffy seat day in and day out, wiping their greasy palms all over the arm rests and in-flight screen entertainment can make an environment seriously dirty.

While it can be worrying, rest assured that there are some pretty fantastic airlines out there who you can rely on for a clean flight.

Skytrax’s World Airline Awards has announced the cleanest carriers of 2018 after passenger’s rated various airlines by the “standard and quality of cleanliness of their aircraft cabin.”

The cleanliness of tables, carpet, panels, washrooms, cabin panels and seats were all factors considered in the results.

Scroll through the gallery above to see the world’s cleanest airlines.
