Flickr/Aero Icarus With 21 fatal accidents and 986 fatalities, 2014 was one of deadliest years in aviation history. That said, flying is still one of the safest forms of transportation in the world. According to Australian consumer aviation website AirlineRatings.com, the airline industry transported 3.3 billion passengers on 27 million flights in 2014. AirlineRatings.com released a list of the 10 safest airlines selected from a pool of 449 carriers around the world. To compile its list, the website evaluated each airline based on its standing with international regulators, its fatality record over the past 10 years, its result from an International Air Transportation Association(IATA) safety audit, and whether the airline’s country of origin conforms with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s 8-point safety parameter. All of the airlines on this list passed those tests with flying colors. Interestingly, the carriers on the list hail exclusively from Asia, Australia, and Europe, with no carriers from the Americas and Africa making the cut. AirlineRatings.com didn’t list the final finishing order for places 2-10, but did crown a winner.
