AirlineRatings.com has released its annual report on which airlines are the safest and pointing out those best not traveled.
They've declared Qantas as having the best record, just as they did last year. A spokesperson for the website noted that they do have the youngest fleet in the air, with an average plane age of slightly less than 8 years. Qantas has been around for 94 years.
Other airlines that performed particularly well include British Airways, Emirates, and Singapore Airlines. They were joined in the top 10 category by Lufthansa, Finnair and others.
