Airline safety rating tool released

AirlineRatings.com has launched the world´s first country and airline safety comparison tool as part of its all new website, the company said.

Safety Rating Tool: https://www.airlineratings.com/safety-rating-tool/

For the first-time travelers can easily select airlines to compare from the 408 that the site rates, or select a country and compare all its airlines.

Those airlines account for approximately 97 per cent of the world travel.

The Airlineratings.com safety rating system has been constructed by bringing together recognized and approved industry and country audits of the airlines themselves and the country´s regulators.

The AirlineRatings.com rating system was created in 2013 and developed with assistance from the International Civil Aviation Organization based in Montreal, Canada in 2014.

AirlineRatings.com does not include incidents in its rating system, as agreed with ICAO, because not all countries report them and incidents happen to all airlines every day. Most are minor in nature but it is the way pilots handle an incident that is critical.

Passengers just need to type in the country they are going to visit and all its airlines are displayed for comparison.

Alternatively, they may select a number of airlines from the alphabetical listing and compare ahead of making their booking.
