Singapore Airlines was the biggest winner at the Official Airline Guide (OAG) annual awards this week.

The Asian-based carrier picked up four gongs, including the title of best international first class airline.

Additionally, Singapore Changi was voted the best airport in the world by the registered OAG members and frequent fliers who took part in the ballot.

Other winners included Continental – which picked up the accolades for best airline based in North America and the best executive/business class carrier – and Virgin Atlantic which was awarded best airline based in Western Europe and best transatlantic airline.

Registered OAG voters selected the winners based on their personal experiences and were only allowed to select three airlines for each category.
