Flying is the fastest and most convienent way to travel long distances. Often it’s the only option if you are crossing into another country or over a large body of water. Some people have a fear of flying. There’s an old saying you may be familiar with: you’re more likely to get in a car crash on the way to the ariport than you are to get in a plane crash. Statistically speaking, this is correct. The Aviation Safety Network has proven that flying is still the safest way to travel. The next time you plan on air travel, book a flight with one of these 9 airlines considered to be the safest in the world.

1) Qantas

Flying for ninety-three years, Qantas boasts itself as the world’s most experienced airline. The Australian based airline has a flawless safety record without one fatality recorded since the jet era (1951). Qantas stays cutting-edge in technology and safety; precision approaches around mountains in limited visibility, and real-time monitoring of their engines to detect issues before it becomes a safety hazard. The airline has a perfect 7 out of 7 score in safety and product ratings. Qantas, a full-service carrier, treats their passengers extremely well, with meals and drink services, even on domestic flights. This earned them the 2015 Best Domestic Airline award, and the 2014 Best Economy Class award. Qantas flies to Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. JetStar and QantasLink are their subsidiary airlines. Prices are surprisingly reasonable for such a prestigious airline; easily comparable to other airlines with lesser standards.
