Australian and NZ Airlines | Rated The Safest For 2019

Are Australian and NZ Airlines The Safest?

Well according to Airlineratings.com they are! Airlineratings.com rated Qantas as the top airline, while Virgin Australia and Air New Zealand made the top 20.

Also Jetstar was in the top low-cost airlines in regards to safety.



Airlineratings.com takes into account 12 criteria that include audits from aviation governing bodies and lead associations, government audits, airlines’ crash and serious incident record, fleet age and profitability.

My thoughts - Well I agree! I have flown Qantas a few times and you always feel safe aboard their fleet of aircraft. No matter how old the aircraft actually are you always feel safe, and can never tell the age of the aircraft, without researching it.

What’s your thoughts on the ratings for the world’s safety airlines and do you agree?

I definitely agree with the results. AU and NZ airlines have been in the top 20 for years now so it’s no surprise in my opinion. :)

Not to discredit this, but I feel like especially when talking about big international airlines “saftest” is a relative thing, they’re all very safe… (with a few notable exceptions)

Yes, but just talking about the opinion of Airlineratings.com and sharing it with the community.

I would hope they are all safe…🤣

Qantas in my opinion has always been the safest airline. Qantas definitely deserved the number one spot.

They are. As KPIT mentioned above though, all major or all airlines are safe, apart from a few exceptions.

These are just the ones that have been rated the safest based on numerous factors!
