If you’re scared of flying (like I am!) than you’re probably best off to book a seat with these airlines.
The German site JACDEC has just published the Airline Safety Ranking 2016 has been running the annual world’s only safety website since 2013 and with good reason. They evaluated 407 international airlines before creating the list of safest airlines in the world. They look at the fatality record, if the airline is FAA endorsed and more.
1. Cathay Pacific
The Chinese Cathay Pacific has been Hong Kong’s home airline for 7 decades now and a leader in the development of the Future Air Navigation System; the Flight Data Recorder to monitor plane and later crew performance; automatic landings using Global Navigation Satellite System as well as precision approaches around mountains in cloud using RNP… Ok, whatever that means. Most important thing is that this is the airline you should fly with to get a little reassurance!
“Our top 20 safest airlines are always at the forefront of safety innovation and the launching of new more advanced aircraft.”
It’s one of our favorite airlines for sure! Love the service, leg room, business and the food is even great. The safety just makes it perfect!
3. EVA Air
Green is not always mean I guess! Eva Air (Taiwanese) are extremely safe!
4. Qatar Airways
Founded in 1993, this airline is managing to keep it up for a large number of years. Well done!
