AirlineRatings Names Safest Airlines in the World: Qantas the Safest 2020

British Airways dropped from top 20 in annual airline safety ranking

AirlineRatings.com (www.AirlineRatings.com), the world's only safety and product rating website, has named Qantas as its safest airline for 2020.

In addition to ranking the safest airlines for 2020, AirlineRatings also highlighted the safest low-priced airlines for the year.

Australia-based AirlineRatings.com releases its safety ranking each year after studying audits from aviation governing bodies, government audits, airlines' crash and serious incident records, fleet age and pilot training and culture.

Here is the list for 2020.

AirlineRatings.com editor-in-chief, Geoffrey Thomas stated: 'Australia's Qantas has been recognised by the British Promoting Requirements Affiliation in a check case in 2008 because the world's most skilled airline.

The editors of the website noted the reason Qantas took out the top position was due to 'truly incredible record of firsts in operations and safety and is now accepted as the industry's most experienced airline'.

"Qantas has been the lead airline in virtually every major operational safety advancement over the past 60 years and has not had a fatality in the pure-jet era", said Thomas.

Air New Zealand comes in second, while Taiwan's EVA Air is third.

Ranked 10-20 are Hawaiian Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, TAP Air Portugal, SAS, Royal Jordanian, Swiss, Finnair, Lufthansa, Aer Lingus and KLM.

British-based Flybe and United States carriers JetBlue and Frontier and Australian all make the list. It included Air Arabia, Flybe, Frontier, HK Express, IndiGo, Jetblue, Volaris, Vueling, Westjet, and Wizz.

Mr Thomas added: 'All airways have incidents day by day and plenty of are plane or engine manufacture points as an alternative of airline operational issues. And it is the way the flight crew handles incidents that determines a good airline from an unsafe one.

Separately, the Aviation Safety Network said earlier this week that the number of fatal aviation accidents last year rose above the five-year average to 20, with more than half occurring in North America.

In 2018, there have been 160 accidents, together with 13 deadly ones, leading to 534 deaths, the agency stated.

Just three airline crashes in 2019 cost the life of at least one passenger.
