Vietnamese low-cost carrier (LCC) Vietjet has made it onto a list of the top ten safest low-cost airlines for 2022, according to an announcement on Wednesday by AirlineRatings.com, a global airline safety and product review website.

AirlineRatings.com compiled the list from a pool of 385 airlines under its monitorship, measuring factors such as incident records over the past two years, crash records over the past five years, results of audits conducted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), EU ban lists, and fleet age.

In alphabetical order, the list includes Allegiant, easyJet, Frontier, Jetstar Group, Jetblue, Ryanair, Vietjet, Volaris, Westjet, and Wizz.

AirlineRatings.com also recently announced its list of the world’s 20 safest airlines for 2022, with Air New Zealand topping the annual safety table.

Air New Zealand was awarded the first place “due to its excellent incident record, number of cockpit innovations, pilot training and very low fleet age,” according to Geoffrey Thomas, editor-in-chief of the Australian-based website.

Etihad Airways took the second place, while Qatar Airways came in third. 

Singapore Airlines and TAP Portugal placed fourth and fifth, respectively.

The other 15 airlines on the list included SAS, Qantas, Alaska Airlines, EVA Air, Virgin Australia/Atlantic, Cathay Pacific Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, American Airlines, Lufthansa/Swiss Group, Finnair, Air France/KLM Group, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and Emirates.

Noticeably missing from the top five is Qantas, which held the title of the world’s safest airline from 2014 to 2017, as well as 2019 to 2021. 

No clear winner was named in 2018.

The factors used to decide the top 20 safest airlines include crash rates over a five-year period, serious incident records over a two-year period, audits from aviation governing and industry bodies, government audits, industry-leading safety initiatives, fleet age, and COVID-19 safety protocols.

AirlineRatings.com was launched in June 2013 and rates the safety and in-flight products of 385 airlines, using a unique seven-star rating system. 

The agency said on its website that its review system has been used by millions of passengers from 195 countries.
