JACDEC Airline Risk Ranking 2023
The JACDEC Airline Safety Ranking compares the largest airlines by their key safety parameters. The complete list together with a comprehensive safety analysis of the past year will be available in the February 2023 issue of the German aviation magazine
Aero International. (in German language)
Just some key factors that are highlighting our new Risk-Index.
- The ranking covers the TOP25 airlines in terms of passenger traffic volume(RPK).
- We now have three additional regional rankings of the TOP25 airlines in
- Europe and Eurasia
- Africa, Mid-East and Asia-Pacific
- 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 “forget”-factor (EMA) allowing a more realistic approach to lessen the influence of past accidents/incidents.
The new JACDEC Risk-Index comprises now more than 30 parameters.

JACDEC offers the 2023 Ranking from the end of January 2023.
We must emphasize that from the year 2018 onwards, the JACDEC Safety Ranking is based on a 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 like to put emphasis on the fact 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 Risk Ranking: this list comprises the largest airlines measured by their revenue passenger performance in RPK’s and compares them by their safety risk indicators. There can be smaller airlines owning a better Risk-Index which the ranking doesn’t reflect.
