Emirates Airlines tops the world for the second time, which scored 95.05 percent in the JACDEC Safety Hazard Index. KLM came after them (KLM) which got 93.31 per cent. American JetBlue came third in the global safety rankingsFollowed by Delta Air Lines of America, and British EasyJet in fifth place. In Europe, the first and fourth places were taken by the Dutch – KLM and its subsidiary Transavia. The second is Spain’s Air Europa, followed by Finnair and easyJet.
The JACDEC Airline Safety Rating includes the 100 largest carriers that are measured on the basis of passenger traffic as well as their revenue from passengers (RPK, or passenger kilometers). During the analysis, when calculating the safety of each, the JACDEC index takes into account the risks and compares 33 parameters. It analyzes the condition and age of aircraft, the history of accidents over the past 30 years, and also assesses the country-specific risk factors and environmental factors in which the airline operates.
All airlines start competing at 100% value. Their level of safety is reduced by: accidents, deaths, injured passengers and even audits. The more penalty points an airline collects, the lower its safety rating. Ranking authors acknowledge that the bar is too high. “To achieve 100 percent. The airline must remain accident-free for 30 years, operate only long flights, operate a small fleet (a fleet between 3 and 9 years would be ideal), pass all airline safety assessments unreservedly and not be exposed to any operational risks Regular like bad seasonal weather,” JACDEC lists from its website.
In addition to the world and European rankings, the Jet Crash Data Assessment Center in Hamburg compiles a list for the Americas, Eurasia, Africa and the Middle East.
