EasyJet has been voted as the best value airline for a beach holiday, beating Jet2 into second place.
A study quizzed British holidaymakers on their flying experiences in 2018 and it also found that British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are the two carriers that jointly make the best ‘impression’.
EasyJet also topped the list for ‘budget beach holiday bookers’ in 2017. For this table those polled were asked to rank airlines in terms of being good/poor value for money.

Amelia Brophy, head of brands UK at YouGov, said: ‘EasyJet appears to have escaped the crises that have taken hold at budget-airline rival Ryanair, and remains in a healthy position in the industry.
‘We can expect increased competition from Jet2 on this front, as the carrier expands and continues to invest in its marketing efforts.
‘Elsewhere, Singapore Airlines maintains its very strong showing, achieving the magic combination of high satisfaction and recommendation levels. With word of mouth still vital to an airline’s success, the carrier is well-placed to capitalise.’
