Cathay Pacific safest Airline in 2016 according to JACDEC


JACDEC just issued it's safety report for 2016 and Cathay Pacific once again is on top of the list being the safest airline in 2016!


In its index rating, JACDEC distinguishes whether an event results in a total loss or the case is "just" a serious incident. All will be recorded in a database and during final weighting a total loss counts considerably more. Only flights where paying passengers have been on board count. Flights for freight, training or mainetenance are disregarded.


 


American Roy C Farrell and Australian Sydney H de Kantzow founded Cathay Pacific Airways on 24 September, 1946. Initially based in Shanghai, the two men eventually moved to Hong Kong and established the airline.
