World's safest airlines in 2012

  • Published by Vedat

Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC) announced Top 10 safest airlines in 2012.

finnair-Airbus-A3193 European airlines entered into the world’s safest airlines listing.

The Top 10 safest airlines list is based on JACDEC’s 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. JACDEC also took into account the international safety benchmarks such as the IOSA Audit and the USOAP country factor. Furthermore JACDEC 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. Fatalities are only counted when they were on board a passenger flight. No ground casualties or 3rd party fatalities in other aircraft.

Finnair is the world's safest airline, Air New Zealand ranked second, followed by Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific.
