The ten safest African airlines
Airlines from other countries got on the list too, including a large number from Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and the Philippines, but the preponderance of Africa-based carriers was noticeable.
In response, Flight Africa blog has published a list of the ten safest African airlines based on "attainment of IOSA Certification, number of accidents per flight and fatalities per passenger kilometres." That last phrase actually made me wince. Here's the list:
1. South African Airways
2. Ethiopian Airlines
3. Air Botswana
4. Air Mauritius
5. Air Seychelles
6. Kenya Airways
8. Royal Air Maroc
9. Nigerian Eagle Airlines
10. Air Zimbabwe
This is an encouraging list because it includes carriers from every region of Africa and some of the most popular tourist destinations. One common mantra of adventure travelers is that they're helping the local economy with the money they spend. This list proves they can start helping before their adventure even starts.
