Airline Safety Ranking 2017

JACDEC Airline Safety Ranking 2017

The complete list comprising all TOP60 airlines together with a comprehensive safety analysis of the past year will be available in the February 2017 issue of the german aviation magazine Aero International. (available in german language only)

Again, JACDEC is classifying the latest Airline Safety Ranking to let consumers get an idea of how to interpret the numbers. First and foremost, the critical parameter about the ranking is our Safety Index. The Index is the result of a complex formular containing multiple factors such as accidents and serious incidents, revenue passenger numbers, Safety Audits, etc. (a detailed description can be found HERE)

There fore we like to emphasize the point that the current safety state of each airline is expressed best by the Safety Index and not by the ranking number. Please note that the tailoring of the Safety Ranking would look very different if it would not be 60 but 80 or 100 airlines in that listing.

2ndly most of the TOP60 airlines (34) improved their Safety Index compared to the previous year. Seven remained at the same level, while 17 came out 2016 with a declined index. Two airlines were completely new to the list.

To dispel a common misconception about the JACDEC Safety Ranking: this list is not about the 60 safest airlines, it comprises the 60 largest airlines measured by their revenue passenger performance in RPK’s.

Quintessence how you should understand the ranking: Focus on the Safety Index values and not so much on the actual placing.

 The rest of the ranking will be made visible gradually after Jan 18th 2017.

The full ranking together with a summarized safety review of 2016 will be published in issue 2 / 2017 on January 18th.
