The research, by travel planning platform Rome2rio, found that Middle Eastern and Asian airlines provide best value for travellers.
A staggering 24 of this year’s top 30 international airlines are based in Asia or the Middle East, with AirAsia X, Air India Express and Indonesia AirAsia making up the top three.
It might come as a surprise to some that European carriers are among the world’s most expensive.
Ryanair was named best for European travel overall. Despite an average price increase, it is still the best value airline in the region, and ranked number seven in the list.British travellers seeking the best value for money may need to forgo any loyalty they may have to particular airlines and investigate new or charter airlines to secure the best price,” Rome2rio boss Kirsteene Phelan said.
Primera Air was ranked top for Transatlantic travel and came in fourth place overall. When it comes to budget flights to the US, Primera was well ahead of newcomer WOW Air and Virgin Atlantic.
If you’re travelling to Australia, Phelan warned that prices can vary wildly.
“Although Qantas, at number eight, ranks highly for value, we are often seeing travellers from the UK to Asia and Australia booking with carriers such as Etihad (sixth), Royal Brunei Airlines (19th), China Southern (20th) and Emirates (25th).“This suggests that whilst overall value may be high for one airline over another, specific route pricing can vary greatly and travellers need to be vigilant for deals to ensure the best price to their destination.”
