Airline Safety Ranking 2018

JACDEC Airline Safety Ranking 2018

This year’s JACDEC Airline Safety Ranking marks a paradigm shift. It now compares the largest 100 airlines by their key safety parameters, displacing the older list of 60 airlines.  The complete list together with a comprehensive safety analysis of the past year will be available in the February 2018 issue of the German aviation magazine Aero International. (available in German language only)

Just some key factors that are highlighting our new Risk-Index.

  • The Ranking covers 100 instead of 60 airlines.
  • The calculation parameters were substantially broadened from 9 to 33 influential factors.
  • We now take systemic risk factors into account.
  • We revised our time-weighting factor (EMA) allowing a more realistic approach to lessen the influence of past accidents/incidents.

The new JACDEC Risk-Index covers now more than 30 parameters.

Read our full guide of explanations about the new Safety Index HERE.

We must emphasize this new JACDEC Safety Ranking is based on an absolute new foundation that forbids any comparison to former rankings. We therefore removed all the older Safety Rankings from our website to avoid any misunderstandings.

Again we strongly recommend that the current safety state of each airline is expressed best by the Risk-Index and not by the ranking number.

To dispel a common misconception about the JACDEC Safety Ranking: this list is not about the 100 safest airlines, it comprises the 100 largest airlines measured by their revenue passenger performance in RPK’s.
