Worlds Safest Airlines

It has been a fairly difficult two years for the airline industry. 2014 was an extremely unfortunate year for Malaysian Airlines with the mysterious disappearance of MH370 and the downing of MH17 over the Ukraine, whilst last year saw an unfortunate act of terror linked to ISIS forcing Russia to respond with firepower. Leaving these tragic events in our wake, it is time to focus on the positive aspect of flying by revealing the Worlds Safest Airlines.
