When selecting the safest airlines, the editors of Airlineratings.com analyze an airline's crash and serious incident record, audits from aviation’s governing and industry bodies, government audits, fleet age, COVID protocols and safety initiatives.
Thomas further explained that all airlines face minor incidents on a daily basis, mostly related to the manufacture of aircraft and engines. The way the flight crew deals with these problems is what separates safe carriers from dangerous ones.
