Travel Website of the Week: Safety Ratings Per Airline

Airline ratingsPlanning a trip that involves flying on an airline you’ve never heard of? Instead of worrying about how safe it is, you can simply look up its ratings on this safety ratings page. The safety rating for each airline is based on a comprehensive analysis utilizing information from the world’s aviation governing bodies and leading associations, along with government audits and crash data.

Each airline is rated between 1-7 stars, with seven being the highest (safest). Fortunately, most if not all U.S. airlines have been given seven stars. The other categories show if an airline is allowed to fly in the EU (European Union), the last time it had a crash, whether it’s endorsed by the FAA, and more.
