The APEX Five Star and Four Star Airline Awards, previously known as the APEX Official Airline Ratings™, are determined by impartial passenger feedback. This feedback is collected through APEX's collaboration with TripIt® from Concur®, a top-rated travel organization app. For the 2024 Awards, passengers rated nearly one million flights from over 600 global airlines using a five-star scale. An external professional auditing firm independently certifies the APEX Five Star and Four Star Airline Awards.Advertising
