China Airlines named 'Best Airline in North Asia'

China Airlines, Taiwan's largest carrier, has been named the "Best Airline in North Asia" excluding China in 2015 in an annual survey by Global Traveler magazine.

It was the third year in a row that the Taiwanese airline emerged as the winner in the category, according to the results of Global Traveler's "Tested Reader Survey" that asks frequent business and luxury travelers to name the best in a variety of travel-related categories.

China Airlines also won the nod for "Best Business-Class Seat Design" and "Best Flight Attendant Uniforms."

Taiwan's other major international airline, EVA Airways, was honored for "Best Airport Staff/Gate Agents" and as the "Best Airline for New Service Launch" for its route between Taipei and Houston that started service in June.

Singapore Airlines was named the world's best airline and the best airline for business class. United Airlines was named the best trans-Pacific airline.

The results are announced in December. (By Tsao Yu-fan and Lilian Wu)
