Airline Risk Ranking 2023


Get the annual Airline Safety Ranking.

The largest passenger airlines compared by their Safety-Risk Index.

This is the 2023 ranking, published in late Jan 2023.
All data is as of 2023-01-01.


This year’s Airline Safety Ranking appears somewhat different from the issues before however, our calculation method remains unchanged. The gist of the new appearance is that we split the entire list into four regional sections to better reflect the market presence in those areas. Each ranking list contains the largest 25 operators. The Top25’s listings are 1.=World, 2.=Africa+Asia, 3.=America (N+S), 4.=Europe+The CIS. All rankings are sorted by their individual Risk-Index.

The Risk-Index expresses the level of operational safety by combining all available parameters (incidents/accidents, fatalities, systemic operational risks, global safety audits, etc) and relates them to the amount of passenger traffic an airline has amassed over a period of (maximum) 30 years.

The ranking will be renewed each year by the end of January.
After your purchase is complete, you will get a download link containing the document as a PDF-File. Please take into account that it could last some hours until your order has been confirmed and the shipment process is initiated.
