Top 10 Safest Airlines in the World for 2023 


on, a reliable source for carrier safety rankings and product ratings, has released the list of the world’s safest airlines for 2023.

Exceptional airlines that “are at the forefront of safety, innovation, and launching of new aircraft” are highlighted in the group’s yearly study, according to AirlineRatings editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas.

After failing to win in 2022, Air New Zealand was dethroned this year by Qantas, the national airline of Australia. The same five US airlines on the list from the previous year—Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, United Airlines, American Airlines, and Delta Air Lines—kept their positions in 2023.

With a history spanning more than a century, Qantas last had a deadly accident in 1951. As a result of never having lost a jet-powered aircraft, the ship has become a safety icon in the global aviation business.

To compile this rating, AirlineRatings examines several variables, such as crashes over the previous five years, serious incidents over the previous two years, audits from governing bodies, airline fleet age, pilot training assessments, COVID protocols, carrier profitability, and safety initiatives.
