How to assess an airline?

An airline may be assessed when enough data is available through our sources. The necessary data is divided into two sections, Airline Factors and Safety Factors.
Country Factors of the airline's home country are also factored into the formula.

Airline Factors
Safety Factors
For the past 10 years
Accidents by Severity
Country Factors
The airline's home country
Airline Risk Score =   0 /10.00   or   0%
Name Country Fleet Size Has IOSA EU Ban Airline Risk Score
Example Airline A 0   0%  

..and compare with all the other assessed airlines

Name Country Fleet Size Has IOSA EU Ban Risk Score
Example Airline B Indonesia 28 - -   46.7%  
Example Airline C Canada 112 -   71.9%  
Example Airline D Nigeria 4 -   9.6%

What to do with an airline risk score?

High Risk Medium Risk Low Risk
Your Low Threshold   Your High Threshold

'Example Airline A'   Safety Score = 56%
Example travel protocol:
"Use with caution. Additional risk mitigation techniques should be applied. Give preference to higher scoring airlines on the required route."

When faced with multiple airline choices on a route, giving preference to an airline with a higher score is a form of risk mitigation. This can decrease the statistical likelihood of being involved in an airline accident.

Airline Scope subscribers can create their own thresholds and travel protocols to dictate how to use an airline's risk score.

About Us

Airline Scope was launched in 2019 to meet the needs of businesses who require relevant and recent information about which airlines are safest for their employees to use.

Our system is the most comprehensive online commercial airline risk assessment platform available. It is built from the ground up in a modern JavaScript framework to be fast loading, secure, clean, and responsive. Data is automatically monitored, imported, and re-calculated 24/7 to ensure that scores are always relevant.

The risk assessment mechanism we use was developed almost 20 years ago and has gone through many iterations and refinements since then. It is robust, transparent, and relied on by many in the mineral resources industry. While Airline Scope is not the only one to use this mechanism, we are on the cutting edge when it comes to device support, up-to-date data, automation, and number of airlines assessed.

Airline Scope is developed and maintained by Joel Targett, who has over 10 years experience in building airline risk assessment systems. Joel is a keen aviation enthusiast and loves to travel. He (and Airline Scope) are based in Newcastle, Australia.
