Airline Safety Ranking For Last 30 Years

Wed May 08, 2013 11:16 am

At http://www.jacdec.de/jacdec_safety_ranking_2012.htm .

Safest of the 60 airlines in the report: Finnair, followed by Air New Zealan and Cathay Pacific.

Least safe: China Airlines (of Taiwan), preceded by TAM (surprising) and Air India (no surprise).

Methodology is noted as "Based on our annual safety calculations which include all hull loss accidents and serious incidents in the last 30 years of operations in relation to the revenue passsenger kilometers (RPK) performed in the same time. We also took into account the international safety benchmarks such as the IOSA Audit and the USOAP country factor. Furthermore we included a time weightening factor which increases the effect of recent accidents and weakening the impact of accidents in the past. All calculation data ends after a period of 30 years".

The title is misleading, the German Name is:
"SICHERHEITSRATE DER 60 GRÖSSTEN FLUGGESELLSCHAFTEN WELTWEIT"

that means: Safety ranking of the 60 biggest airlines in the world.


Small airlines with a good safety record do not make it on this list

You got to be kidding. Validity of this report was discussed in length few months back. These experts probably compiled the data during Oktoberfest. AI182 is not AI's fault.

Though I am happy to see AY ranking as no. 1, I take these kind of rankings with a grain of salt. Anything can happen, even to the ones who do business with responsibility.

I think one of the most important factor to safety is the safety culture built inside the airline. This incudes openness and accpetive attitude towards problems/errors made by any employee and ability to learn from them. Not to mention that people are have up to date training, are motivated and equipment used are correctly maintained.

My 2 cents

How is someone's safety performance from 1985 relevant to 2013? It's statistics for the sake of statistics. It tells you nothing.
