With a big record in the jet era, Qantas Airways of Australia is top of the list for the fourth year. Other companies on the list in alphabetical order are:

Air New Zealand, Alaska Airlines, All Nippon Airways, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways,  Delta Air Lines, Etihad Airways, EVA Air, Finnair, Hawaiian Airlines, Japan Airlines, KLM, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airline System, Singapore Airlines, Swiss, United Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia

In the making of the list audit reports from aviations’ governing bodies and lead associations; government audits; airlines’ crash and serious incident record; profitability and fleet ages were taken into consideration.

One of the world’s most awarded and experienced editorial team which prepared this list also analyzed each airline’s fleet history and its track record of initiating new safety technology to find top 20 safest airlines.

Editors also identified their top ten safest low-cost airlines for you. In alphabetical order, they are:  Aer Lingus, Flybe, HK Express, Jetblue, Jetstar Australia, Jetstar Asia, Thomas Cook, Virgin America, Vueling and Westjet.

Unlike a number of low-cost carriers, these airlines have all passed the tough International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) which has over 1000 audit items and have perfect safety records.

148 airlines of the 425, have the top seven-star safety ranking but almost 50 have just three stars or less. Only 14 airlines have just one star and they are from Afghanistan, Indonesia, Nepal and Surinam.

While selecting Qantas as the world’s safest airline for the fourth year, editors noted that it has collected a great record of firsts in operations and safety in its 96 years old history
