World’s top 10 safest airlines named (relax.com.sg)
Finnair has been named the safest airline in the world, followed by Air New Zealand.
The German-based Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC) recently released the 2012 results which revealed rankings of 60 airlines based on their safety track records.
Those that ranked in the Top 10 basically had little or no accidents involving fatalities over a period of time.
Australian publication The Age reported that none of the top nine ranked airlines had lost an aircraft or had a fatality during the 30-year period, but many had also not been active for the full 30 years.
Monitoring airplane crashes around the world, JACDEC recorded 496 fatalities and 44 hull losses in 2012.
JACDEC said on its website that “safety calculations (included) all hull loss accidents and serious incidents in the last 30 years of operations”.
