Taiwan's national carrier EVA Air was recently ranked as the world’s ninth safest airline for 2020 by Germany’s AERO International magazine.
Prior to the announcement, the airline was previously recognized by airline safety and product rating website airlinerating.com as the third-safest airline behind Qantas and Air New Zealand.
In a statement received by The Jakarta Post, EVA Air stressed that it strove to maintain the highest standards of flight safety. “For EVA, safety is the most important part of every flight.”
Published monthly, AREO International bases its safety rankings on data provided by the Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC). A risk index used by JACDEC assesses 33 parameters for annual overall safety rankings to compare each airline. Airlines are evaluated on fleet age, IATA flight safety audits, serious flight accidents and flight losses.
