Kulula among world’s safest airlines


Cape Town – In a period where international airline safety has been under serious scrutiny due to a number of major devastating aviation accidents in 2014, South Africa’s kulula.com has been recognised as one of the safest low-cost airlines in the world, coming as a welcome reassurance for South African flyers.

The Aviation website AirlineRatings.com has just released its annual list of the world’s 10 safest airlines, as well as the world’s top 10 safest low-cost airlines, under which kulula is recognised.

Other low-cost airlines awarded alongside kulula include, in alphabetical order, Aer Lingus of Ireland, Alaska Airlines of the US, Icelandair of Iceland, Jetblue of the US, Jetstar of Australia, Monarch Airlines and Thomas Cook of the UK, TUIfly of Germany and WestJet of Canada.

Airline Ratings elaborates on the recognition saying, “unlike a number of low cost carriers, these airlines have all passed the stringent International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) audit and have excellent safety records.”

In the safest airline category, Australian airline Qantas grabbed the top spot again. The other 9 safest airlines are, in alphabetical order, Air New Zealand, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Emirates, Etihad Airways, EVA Air, Finnair, Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines.

The AirlineRatings.com rating system takes into account audits from aviation’s governing bodies and lead associations as well as government audits and the airlines’ fatality records.

The system also examines the airlines’ operational histories, incident records and operational excellence.
