Croatia Airlines among the safest airlines
Zagreb, 13th January 2014
According to a survey carried out by the specialised international internet portal AirlineRatings.com, Croatia Airlines, the Croatian flag carrier and Star Alliance member, is one of the safest global airlines. The analysis included 448 airlines all over the world, and AirlineRatings.com accessed the safety of flights on Croatia Airlines with the highest rating (seven stars) and included the company in the highest civic air traffic category based on safety.
AirlineRatings.com compiles its list of the safest airlines on the basis of annual analyses of flight safety which relies on audit results prepared by competent civic air traffic bodies and agencies, national audits carried out by individual airlines, , professional opinions given by the leading airline associations and the number of fatal accidents. After analysing the year 2013, which has been the safest year for passengers since 1945 according to the AirlineRatings.com's data, Croatia Airlines is rated among the 137 safest global air traffic companies, such as Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, Emirates, Cathay Pacific Airways, All Nipon Airways, Etihad Airways and others.
This international acknowledgement refutes the unsubstantiated insinuations which question the safety of flights provided by this company, mainly those by Dash 8-Q400 aircraft. At the same time, the acknowledgment by AirlineRatings.com confirms that the Management Board of Croatia Airlines, within the implementation of the restructuring program which includes savings in many areas of business activities, pays special attention to the safety of flights, i.e. passengers, and does not make any compromises when it comes to safety.
