World's Safest Airlines 2018

World's safest airlines - the ones that have never had a single plane crash
Hugh Morris
While any plane crash in the modern age may feel like a freak occurrence, there's no escaping the fact that some airlines are safer than others.

That much is made clear by the existence of an EU "blacklist" of carriers banned from flying above European airspace (don't worry, none you know), but a more thorough look at the incident logs of some of the world's oldest airlines reveals that some are so safe they've never - or almost never - had a fatal crash.

Considering the jet era, beginning around the Fifties and Sixties, discounting the days when commercial air travel was a dangerous novelty in light aircraft, there is more than a handful of carriers to have never lost a life on one of their planes.

This week's incident on a Southwest aircraft - in which a woman died after being half sucked out of a window that had been smashed by part of one of the plane's engines - has provided a rare blot on the airline's otherwise clean safety record.

Though not a crash, it is the American carrier's first in-flight fatality. Flying since 1971, the airline's only other fatal incident is when in 2005, a 737 overran the runway upon landing at Chicago Midway International in heavy snow conditions and slid into the street, striking a car and killing a six-year-old boy.

Here we round up some of the better-known airlines with a spotless safety record. Scroll down for a full list of carriers never to have had a fatal accident...
