NEW: Top 20 World's Safest Airlines For 2019

The safest airline in the world is Qantas, according to a new list from AirlineRatings.com, the world’s only safety, and product rating website.

"It is extraordinary that Qantas has been the lead airline in virtually every major operational safety advancement over the past 60 years and has not had a fatality in the jet era," AirlineRatings.com editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas said in a press release.

"But Qantas is not alone," he added. "Long established airlines such as Hawaiian and Finnair have perfect records in the jet era."

Qantas took the top honor beginning in 2014 through 2017, and was a joint winner last year because the site didn't rank the top 20, according to CNN Travel. United is back on the list after the ranking left it out it last year.
