EgyptAir Crash and the Ten Safest Airlines

Published on : Saturday, May 21, 2016

EgyptAirThe investigation into what caused the plane to go down is ongoing. Aaircraft wreckage was found near Karpathos Island. It has yet to be determined whether or not the crash was a result of terrorism or technical error. EgyptAir tweeted earlier that any claims of terrorism are mere speculation; however, routine maintenance checks were performed on Airbus A320 Wednesday morning in Cairo before it left for Paris, and Egypt’s civil aviation minister is more inclined to point to terrorism as a cause for the plane’s disappearance.

 
Terrorism or technical error, one thing is absolutely certain: this tragedy will affect travel.
“Any incident of this nature is always going to raise security concerns,” a source at Delta Air said. “Travelers can expect additional armed guards at outside checkpoints as well as increased security checks inside.”

 
Of course, airport security isn’t the only concern. EgyptAir is bound to take a hit among both employee and passenger trust—consumer markets tend to take a while to forget (and forgive) major air events; actually, most airlines can expect a dip in shares when the markets close at the end of the day. Consumers looking to take advantage of ticket prices might find lower prices as airlines attempt to recover losses.

 
That said, traveler psychology is naturally going to suffer. With a loss of trust comes an understandable fear for travel safety. But, according to Katrina Roberts, VP of Communications at CookTravel.net, travelers needn’t worry too much.
“Every airline in the world is going to take all precautions necessary to insure passenger and employee safety,” she said. “As tragic as these things are, there is usually no safer time to fly than in the immediate aftermath.”
For those who are still unsure, AirlineRatings offers a list of the safest airlines in the world, giving the best airlines a 7/7 star rating for safety. Comparatively, EgyptAir received a 5/7 rating.
