Regional Express (Rex) has been ranked as the world’s Top Performing Regional Airline by Aviation Week and Space Technology (AWST) for a third consecutive year, ahead of American carriers Skywest Inc, Pinnacle Airlines and Republic Airways.

Assessing all publicly traded airlines worldwide, AWST based each ranking score on performance categories covering financial fitness and earnings performance from a selection of 18 ratios over a 10 year period.
