Every traveler has asked at least once to himself if flying is safe or not. Probably it wasn’t in the past but today’s planes are some of the safest machines in the world! They have been designed to keep woking even if there are some problems. It is more likely to be killed in a car rather than in a plane. There are more issues on the planes, of course, but they are considered of particular and sometimes unpredictable and extraordinary nature.
Nowadays pilots are able to have an almost fully control of their aircraft. Ryanair is considered the safest airline company in the world if we take into account a specific statistic. The statistic that has been considered is the one of the people who have died in an accident. They take into account the airline company that had the lowest number of died people during accidents. No one has died in a plane accident involving Ryanair since its first flight in July 1985. The number of safe passengers who have traveled with Ryanair is growing and growing every day. It reached 1.1 billion and the rate of growth is of 356,000 per day.
In second place there is the low cost EasyJet. The number of safe passengers is 820 million since its first flight in November 1995. Other important records have been reached by the following companies: Flybe, Jet2, Thomas Cook Airlines and Virgin Atlantic. It is important to mention Monarch the British company that collapsed in 2017. It had no fatal accidents in a carreer of almost half a century.
If we consider the most expensive airline companies we have on top the Australian airline company Qantas. AirlineRatings.com said: “The Australian airline has been a leader in the development of: Future Air Navigation System; the flight data recorder to monitor plane and later crew performance; automatic landings using Global Navigation Satellite System as well as precision approaches around mountains in cloud using RNP”. In the other positions we can find Fly Emirates, Singapore Airlines and British Airways.
Airlineratings.com says that accidents can happen and sometimes they are not connected to the airline company or to the aircraft. But the most important thing is how the crew is able to cope with the accidents and the bad situations. This can make the difference.
