2010 Marked Safest Year for Air Travel Ever Recorded

This blog post was updated on July 8, 2021.

2010 was the safest year ever recorded for air travel.

Only one accident was reported for every 1.6 million flights made in western-built jets.

That number bests the one per 1.4 million reported in 2009, and is the lowest since records were first kept.

There were just 17 accidents reported in western-built jets in 2010, down from 19 in 2009.

IATA director-general Giovanni Bisignani said officials were happy with the safety improvement but stressed that they were not complacent. “Our target is zero,” Bisignani said, referring to the accident rate.
