Aviation Survey

In the past 27 years, airline fatal accident numbers have declined which is the lowest annual figure in 10 years despite traffic growth. Seven of the fatal accidents last year involved passenger jets. According to the International Air Transport Association’s director of programs implementation, Mike O’Brien “last year looked set to be the safest year ever with a global average rate of 0.65 hull losses per million sectors and an IATA member carrier hull-loss rate of 0.29 for the same period. Between 1 December and the year-end there has been one jet hull loss, but no fatal accidents, so the overall verdict for 2006 remains good.”
