Air safety report

Boeing has just updated our annual air safety report.

It’s the 41st annual “Statistical Summary of Commercial Jet Airplane Accidents,” our way of studying trends to help prevent future accidents.

Much like the Current Market Outlook, this analysis is a definitive source for the aviation industry that Boeing shares widely with all of our stakeholders.

We’re committed to safety, and we work with governments, operators and industry members every day to advance safety across the global air transportation system.

I invite you to take a look as well.

Chris C (South Africa):

This report is certainly very informative, and, at the same time, it’s not the most enjoyable to read either, if you know what I mean. This year has very sadly and unfortunately seen many major hull loses already.

As the report indicates, we, as professionals involved in the aviation industry, hope to learn from these very tragic events and to implement newer and safer procedures that’ll hopefully avert these sad events in the future.

Norman (Long Beach, California, United States):

Even with more people flying and more aircraft in the air, flying has become safer as the years progress, there are years with increased anomalies but the trend is for the better. You are safer in a plane than you are in a car.
