2017 was the safest year on record for airline passengers, the Civil Aviation Safety Review has revealed.
With more people flying to more places than ever it will come as a relief to find that no jets crashed in passenger service anywhere in the world last year.
The Dutch-based aviation consultancy, To70, has released its Civil Aviation Safety Review for 2017. It reports only two fatal accidents, both involving small turbo-prop aircraft, with a total of 13 lives lost.
The Aviation Safety Network also reported there were no commercial passenger jet deaths in 2017, but 10 fatal airliner accidents resulting in 44 fatalities on-board and 35 persons on the ground, including cargo planes and commercial passenger turbo prop aircraft.
