The APEX Five Star and APEX Four Star Airline Awards, formally the APEX Official Airline Ratings™, are the first airline rating program based solely on certified passenger feedback.  The industry’s most anticipated honor is 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. Using a five-star scale, more than one million flights have been rated by passengers across nearly 600 airlines from around the world and independently certified by a professional external auditing company.

APEX Five Star Airline Awards and APEX Four Star Airline Awards recognize airlines in four categories: 

  • Global Airlines
  • Major Airlines
  • Regional Airlines
  • Low Cost Carriers
