World's First Airline Safety Rating Tool

2017-12-06 18:00

Embargoed 9pm (December 6th, 2017 AEST)

PERTH, Australia, Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- has launched the world's first country and airline safety comparison tool as part of its all new website.

Safety Rating Tool:

For the first-time travelers can easily select airlines to compare from the 408 that the site rates, or select a country and compare all its airlines.

Those airlines account for approximately 97 per cent of the world travel.

The safety rating system has been constructed by bringing together recognized and approved industry and country audits of the airlines themselves and the country's regulators.

The rating system was created in 2013 and developed with assistance from the International Civil Aviation Organization based in Montreal, Canada in 2014.

The Various Audits Cover Several Thousand Different Critical Criteria.

One audit, the International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), which has 1067 different criteria has dramatically reduced the number of accidents.

Over the past five years the accident rate for IOSA members was been between twice and three times as good as for non-IOSA airlines.

The rating system also includes the EU Blacklist and FAA assessment of airlines.

The other major audit is the ICAO country audit which looks at eight different areas of industry oversight of its airlines and the systems that they use such as air traffic control and airports. does not include incidents in its rating system, as agreed with ICAO, because not all countries report them and incidents happen to all airlines every day. Most are minor in nature but it is the way pilots handle an incident that is critical.

Passengers just need to type in the country they are going to visit and all its airlines are displayed for comparison.

Alternatively, they may select a number of airlines from the alphabetical listing and compare ahead of making their booking.
