Aviation Safety Fundamentals
Did You Know?
Aviation is the safest form of long-distance transport. In 2021, the all-accident rate (measured in accidents per 1 million flights) was 1.01, which was the equivalent of one accident for every 990,000 flights. This was a much improved over the all-accident rate of 1.23 for the previous 5-year period (2016-2020).
The 2021 fatality risk of 0.23 means that, on average, a person would need to take a flight every day for 10,078 years to be involved in an accident with at least one fatality.
