Fewer Aircraft Crashes, But More Deaths In 2009

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) study reports 2009 had the second lowest rate of aircraft accidents on record with 2006 having the lowest.

Although there were 18 fatal crashes in 2009 compared with 23 in 2008, there were 685 people killed as compared to 502 in 2008. In 2009, 2.6 billion people arrived safely at their destinations and plane crashes are down 36 percent since 2000.

Iata’s study included only western built aircraft. It also suggests North America and Europe were the better performers globally while Africa had the worst performance rate, accounting for only 2% of global flights yet had 26% of the aircraft crashes.
