About Us

Airlineratings.com - The world's best one-stop airline safety and product rating review website.

Have you ever wondered how safe the airline you are about to board is? Perhaps you have had niggling doubts, strong feelings or extreme anxiety about what lies ahead? In a world-first, www.airlineratings.com delivers expert safety ratings for more than 435 airlines around the world.

Airlineratings.com is packed with information about air travel and answers questions that many of us may have thought of, but didn't know who to ask. Well now you do!

Airlineratings.com was developed to provide everyone in the world a one-stop-shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.

Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety - with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation's governing bodies, lead associations as well as the airlines own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.

Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world's passengers have a product rating. Given that low cost, regional and full service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline.
