"These  airlines are standouts in the industry and are at the forefront of safety and innovation".
"Our top 20 safest airlines are always at the forefront of safety innovation, operational excellence and the launching of new more advanced aircraft like the Airbus A350 and Boeing 787", said Geoffrey Thomas, AirlineRatings.com's Editor-in-Chief.
Last year was the safest year in history for commercial airlines, according to separate reports from Dutch consultancy To70 and The Aviation Safety Network (ASN), with a total of 10 fatal airliner accidents recorded worldwide, a drop from 2016's figure of 16 accidents.
The Aviation Safety Network also reported there were no commercial passenger jet deaths in 2017, but 10 fatal airliner accidents resulting in 44 fatalities onboard and 35 persons on the ground, including cargo planes and commercial passenger turbo prop aircraft.
This year, AirlineRatings.com has chose to honor the top 20 airlines on equal footing.
"For instance, Australia's Qantas has been recognized by the British Advertising Standards Association in a test case as the world's most experienced airline". Only two carriers based in the US made the list: Alaska and Hawaiian Airlines. Passenger flights operated by major carriers are far and away the safest means of popular transportation.
Thomas says it only looks at serious incidents when making its determinations.
Conspicuously absent from the list were Delta and United, two airlines that did not suffer major accidents but had too many incidents in 2017 to be considered among the safety leaders.
He cites Qantas' excellent response to a 2010 incident in Singapore when a Rolls Royce engine shattered after an A380 took off.
Responding to the public interest, the AirlineRatings.com editors also identified their Top 10 safest low-priced airlines.
