Airline safety results for January-June 2013

Airline safety globally has been very good in the first half of 2013 compared with the same period in previous years. The number of fatal accidents equals the lowest ever, and the number of actual fatalities is less than half the previous lowest figure.

The full figures and safety analysis, together with a detailed list of accidents, are already available to our Flightglobal Pro subscribers. It will also be in next week’s Flight International magazine, and about the same time will go up on our website for our FG Club members (registering for FG Club is free).
This maintains a slow but consistently improving trend in airline safety worldwide, while also illustrating the difference between the best and the worst, and demonstrates that the word’s most popular accident category (runway excursions) is showing resistance to improvement.
