How Safe are Flight Journeys?

Posted on January 5th, 2015

With many tragedies in such quick succession, many people will, understandably, be asking questions about aviation safety.

A statistics report determined that the death risk for passengers of commercial airlines is one in 45 million flights. According to The New York Times, a traveler could fly every day for a hundred thousand years and still be safe. Not only are airplanes continuously getting safer, they are also the least dangerous way to get to your destination. Everyday activities from walking to driving are still considerably more lethal. The probability of getting killed in a car wreck on the way to the airport is more than 20 times higher than it is being on an airplane.
