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

The closest city in between the Alberta mountains is Canmore which is situated in the Bow Valley. An area that held the 1988 Calgary winter Olympics which turned the town into the holiday resort it is today. Known for its skiing as well as a series of hiking, mountain biking, equestrian, and paved trails that traverse the Canmore area.

Accomondation in the area can be quite hard to find sometimes depending on the season but one should check out the Canmore rentals that are available especially if you feel like pampering yourself after a hard day in the nature.

For more information on low-price condos with a little more luxury and great prices, check out the availability in Canmore on www.leavetown.com
