The results of Skyscanner’s first Asia Pacific Airline Food Awards are in, with Tiger Airways, Singapore Airlines and Garuda Indonesia taking out the top spots for their respective categories.

A panel of over 200 travellers and bloggers from across Asia Pacific were recruited in Skyscanner’s study of on-board meals, making their decisions based on taste, presentation, choice and the value for money (for low cost airline’s meals).

Here are the results:

Top 5 Low-cost Airline Food

  • Tiger Airways
  • Scoot
  • Air Asia
  • Jeju Air
  • Spring Airlines

Top 5 Short-haul Airline Food

  • Singapore Airlines
  • Garuda Indonesia
  • Korean Air
  • Philippine Airlines
  • China Southern

Top 5 Long-haul Airline Food

  • Garuda Indonesia
  • Korean Air
  • Singapore Airlines
  • AirAsiaX
  • Air China

Another survey by Skyscanner revealed, 54 percent of 1,500 international respondents believed that the quality of airline food was quite good and three-quarters thought that it had improved compared to previous years.

This response is likely due to airlines putting a greater importance on serving good food as travellers become more swayed with the menu choices when deciding on which airline to fly with, according to the survey.

Interestingly, 28 percent of respondents ordered a special diet meal, with 8 percent admitting to this choice because they thought those meals tasted better.
