These Are the Most Dangerous Airlines in the World for 2019

These Are the Most Dangerous Airlines in the World for 2019

AirlineRatings.com has made public some of the globe’s most dangerous carriers and airline operators, reports Forbes.com. The majority of those on this list have been involved in multiple fatal incidents and crashes during the last decade, with some being banned from American and European airspace.

Website AirlineRatings.com is well-known within the aviation industry for naming and celebrating the safety achievements of some of the world’s major airlines, but the website has also made public the carriers at the opposite ends of the scale, reports Forbes.com.

That is to say, the website’s findings – which are based on a seven-star system, with one star denoting the lowest rating – take into account a variety of factors. As Forbes.com explains, ratings are given based on the International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certifications plus things like the number of fatalities incurred during the last ten years and even country blacklists.

Not a single of the carriers listed by AirlineRatings, explains Forbes.com, has, “…attained any more than two out of seven stars.”

Two Nepalese carriers – Tara Air and Nepal Airlines – have the ignominy of making this list. The former airline has had more than its fair share of fatal accidents within the last decade while the safety record of the latter airline – while slowly improving – is concerning. Both have been awarded just a single star.

Two Afghan airlines also feature on this list. Both Ariana Afghan Airlines – the Asian nation’s flag carrier – and Kam Air have been involved in fatal accidents, with the latter banned from U.S. airspace.

Both Bluewing Airlines and Trigana Air Service – which operate out of Suriname and Indonesia, respectively – have been involved in a number of fatal incidents and have airspace bans.

But as Forbes.com reports, not all of these carriers have been involved in fatal crashes. For example, for SCAT Airlines, it’s a lack of paperwork that has raised concerns. It hasn’t had an accident since 2013, but the Kazakhstan-based airline is currently operating without any kind of recognized safety certificate.

    I’ve been on Trigana before. Many of their flights involve going into underserved airfields with limited navigational equipment.
