UPDATE ON AIRLINE SAFETY RATINGS- IT GETS WORSE FOR AIRASIA

A list of the most dangerous airlines in the world has been released and while AirAsia Indonesia is included, Malaysia Airlines is not.

The list of the most dangerous airlines of the world was published in the Daily Mail (Australia edition) recently. The following is extracted from the Daily Mail Australia 4 May 2016.

“The Malaysian carrier MAS scored five out of a possible seven stars for its safety record, as opposed to five airlines which just manage one star.

Three AirAsia subsidiaries – in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines – were included on the list, scoring just two, three and three stars respectively.

Indonesia’s AirAsia Flight QZ8501 crashed into the Java Sea on December 28, killing all 162 people on board.

AirlineRatings.com reveals that out of the 449 airlines studied, five airlines received one star or less in the website’s seven-star safety ranking. There were 149 airlines which achieved seven-stars while 58 scored six stars and almost 41 had just three stars or less.
