World’s Safest Airline

Finnair has been labelled the world’s safest airline by Europe’s Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JADEC), followed closely by Air New Zealand.

JADEC examines the world’s worst crashes, constructing a database of photographs and records. New Zealand’s flag carrier was ranked second, while Cathay Pacific rounded out the top three. The two Emirati airlines, Emirates and Etihad, made the top five, followed by Taiwan’s Eva Air, Portugal’s TAP and China’s Hainan Airlines. Virgin Australia and British Airways finished in ninth and tenth place respectively. “We are ecstatic to be called the world’s safest airline,” Finnair country sales manager Australia and New Zealand Geoff Stone said. “Safety can never be compromised and we look forward to continuing our great history of pioneering and welcoming new Finnair customers to the fastest (and safest) route to Europe from Australia.”
