NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 3/01/2017

Air New Zealand has scored second in a list of airlines with the best safety record in 2016.

Cathay Pacific retained its spot as the carrier with the best safety record, according to the study by the Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC), carried out for air industry magazine Aero International. The information will be published on January 18 but has been obtained by dpa early.

Air New Zealand is second, Hainan Airlines third and Qatar Airways fourth, according to dpa.

The JACDEC researchers make their calculations based on an airline's record, cross-referenced with the number of accidents and total losses, over the span of 30 years.
