Qantas Airways tops world’s safest airline list

by amit.uniyal 15. January 2014 08:43

Australia’s flagship carrier Qantas Airways has emerged at the top of the world’s safest airlines list. A renowned safety and product rating site recently announced its latest findings saying that Qantas Airways has been operating jets for above 60 years now and has never met a fatality ever since the jet era began.

The rating site considered 448 carriers and compared their safety records and safety audits. Accordingly, the rating site prepared its 2013 report. A total of 137 carriers were finally awarded a maximum seven stars. Apart from Qantas Airways, the other international airlines that made it to the top 10 in the world’s safest airline list include Air New Zealand, Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Singapore Airlines, Virgin Atlantic Airways, EVA Air, All Nippon Airways and Royal Jordanian Airlines.

The rating site praised Qantas Airways effusively and lauded its 93-year-old history. The airline was acknowledged for accumulating an extraordinary record of firsts in safety and operations during its entire operational history. On the other hand there were nearly 50 airlines out of the total 448 who were awarded only three stars or less. Most of these carriers failed to come up to the expectations and were unable to complete the International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA). The control systems and operational management of a carrier are assessed by the IOSA.
