Global accident rate is lowest ever for Western-built jets
Last year was the safest in aviation history for passengers flying on Western-built jets, an international aviation trade group said recently. The 2010 global accident rate was 0.61 per million flights, a rate equating to one accident for every 1.6 million flights, according to the International Air Transport Association — IATA. That is just below the previous historic low rate of 0.65 rate in 2006, and a significant improvement over the rate of 0.71 recorded in 2009.
