The China Travel Awards

The China Travel Awards are awarded by CAPSE from the perspective of Chinese passengers and were created to recognise the achievements generated by airlines who merit the bespoke award. The various award winners are evaluated based on the analysis of passengers' reviews across the whole process of services.

Awards Methodology

At the China Travel Awards ceremony, CAPSE presented various awards in air travel to airlines. The awards were based on the all-weather collected flight evaluation of Chinese passengers. The surveyed passengers included not only ordinary economy class passengers and premium passengers from the first and business class but also the ultra premium members from Air Topper Club of CAPSE. Diversified participants ensured the authenticity and validity of the data.

The survey covered 334 airlines and 788 airports globally on 5,428 international routes from China to the rest of the world; a total of 10,992 flights were evaluated and over 200,000 questionnaires were collected.
