World’s Safest Airlines 2023

AirlineRatings.com, the world’s only safety, product and COVID-19 rating website, has just released its list of safest airlines for 2023, with Aussie airline Qantas taking out the top spot. It’s some good news for the airline that has suffered a number of PR blows in 2022. This was due to some very negative customer service experiences and ridiculous delays which we experienced first-hand a number of times last year.

As far as safety reputation goes though, Qantas just edged out last year’s winner Air New Zealand by the finest of margins.

According to AirlineRatings.com Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas:

“Our Top Twenty safest airlines are all standouts in the industry and are at the forefront of safety, innovation, and launching of new aircraft. In fact, the safety margins between these top twenty airlines are very small, they are all outstanding airlines.”

In making its evaluation, AirlineRatings.com takes into account a comprehensive range of factors that include serious incidents, recent fatal accidents, audits from aviation’s governing and industry bodies, profitability, industry-leading safety initiatives, expert pilot training assessment and fleet age.
