Emirates Named “World’s Safest Airlines” of 2017

Dubai’s flagship carrier has done it again! Based on a study done by the Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC), Emirates is the world’s safest airlines of 2017. The specialised study was done for Aero International, a magazine about the air industry.

Last year, Emirates also made the headlines when it was voted as the best airline in the world during the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.

Emirates is the world’s safest airline of 2017.

Emirates Hailed as Safest Airline in the World

The JACDEC study ranked airlines from all over the world based on the average age of their fleets, overall performance, and accidents / incidents (if any) over the past three years. Here are some key findings and highlights of the study:

  • Emirates ranked no. 1 in the list, making it the world’s safest airline.
  • Air Shuttle (Norway) came in second place, while Virgin Atlantic Airways (United Kingdom) ranked third.
  • KLM (Netherlands), EasyJet (United Kingdom), and Finnair (Finland) ranked fourth, fifth, and sixth, respectively.
  • Two other airlines from the UAE made it to the top ten — Etihad Airways (seventh place) and Air Arabia (tenth place).
  • Spirit Airlines (United States) came in eight place, whereas Jetstar Airways (Australia) ranked ninth.

Etihad Airways came in seventh place.

Among the top ten safest airlines in the world, the UAE is the only country that has three airlines in the list: Emirates, Etihad Airways, and Air Arabia. That is quite an achievement!
