The Hamburg-based company JACDEC have announced the safest airline in the world after having ranked 800 carriers in 178 countries and regions.

The title was awarded to the Finnish flag carrier, Finnair, who in November this year can celebrate their 50th anniversary as an airline without any casualties.

JACDEC stands for Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre and has been doing its audits for 36 years. They don’t only measures the number of air crashes, but also takes into account damage to aircrafts and other incidents, all in relation to the number of passengers.

The relatively new airlines in the international market, such as Etihad and Emirates, have a slight advantage as they are not burdened by statistics as far as 36 years back.

Finnair’s last fatality occurred in 1963, 13 years before JACDEC began keeping statistics. In November 1963 an aircraft of the type OH-LCA crashed near the archipelago of Åland. 22 passengers and the entire crew perished.

The top 10 safest airlines in the world

1. Finnair

2. Air New Zealand

3. Cathay Pacific

4. Emirates

5. Etihad

6. Eva Air (Taiwan)

7. TAP (Portugal)

8. Hainan Airlines

9. Virgin Australia

10. British Airways
