Good old Qantas has done it again, beating down international airlines to nab the title of world’s safest airline.

The aviation geeks over at AirlineRatings.com awarded our national carrier the shiny crown for the third year running, applauding its “extraordinary fatality-free record in the jet era”.

A total of 407 airlines were monitored, taking into account a range of factors including an airline’s operational history, incident reports and fatality record (grim).

A Qantas spokesperson said the sash “belonged to the thousands of people who made safety their number one priority”.

“It’s also a reflection of the fact everyone involved in aviation from airlines to regulators and aircraft manufacturers, work to share learnings and make constant improvements to keep flying the safest way to travel,” he added.

Budget partner Jetstar and rival Virgin Australia were also given the maximum seven-stars for safety, however one Aussie flyer didn’t fare so well.

Tigerair Australia was awarded just four stars, putting it on par with airlines such as South Africa’s Mango Airlines, Thai Airways, and Thai Lion Air.

A total of 148 airlines achieved a seven-star rating, which is good news for all you high-flyers, while 50 were rated three-stars or less, including ten that were given a single, measly star. They were mainly Indonesian carriers, such as Lion Air, TransNusa and Sriwijaya Air and Nam Air.

For future reference, some of the safest airlines you’ll want to be flying with include Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific Airways, Emirates, Etihad Airways, American Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, United Airlines, Swiss and Virgin.

For the tight -asses out there, the best low cost carriers included Aer Lingus, Flybe, HK Express, Jetblue, Jetstar Australia, Thomas Cook, TUI Fly, Virgin America, Volaris and Westjet. And yes, we haven’t heard of most of them either.
