Worst airlines to avoid in 2024

Published

on

In recent years, the aviation industry has seen a concerning trend in the frequency and severity of airplane accidents.

High-profile disasters such as Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the 2014 AirAsia tragedy, and the Boeing 737 MAX crashes in 2019 and 2020 have brought the issue of airline safety into sharp focus.

Often, these incidents stem from inadequate safety standards, poor regulatory oversight, and insufficient training.

A significant number of airlines, particularly those prohibited from operating in U.S. or European airspace, exhibit a worrying disregard for safety protocols.

AirlineRatings.com provides a seven-star rating system for airlines, evaluating their safety standards.

The criteria include the history of accidents and fatalities attributable to the airline, adherence to country-specific blacklists, and compliance with the International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) standards.

The airlines discussed below have alarmingly scored below 3 out of 7 stars in this system.

Lion Air puts $500 million IPO on hold as global equity markets …

Lion Air

Indonesia’s Lion Air, a major low-cost carrier, operates flights from Australia to various destinations in Indonesia, Asia, and the Middle East. For much of its history, Lion Air was banned from flying to the European Union and the United States due to ongoing safety concerns. The airline’s record is marred by 15 serious accidents, some fatal and others resulting in irreparable aircraft damage. Despite efforts to improve safety, including obtaining European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, Lion Air’s safety challenges persist.

A notable incident in 2018 involved a Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX crashing into the Java Sea, killing all 189 on board. Investigations pointed to significant aircraft design and maintenance flaws, inadequate pilot and crew training, and lax oversight by Indonesian regulators. Lion Air’s operation of numerous routes without government permission further underscores its safety shortcomings.

Yeti Airlines

Operating in Nepal, Yeti Airlines faces the unique challenges of flying in a region known for its hazardous weather and treacherous flying conditions, including the presence of the Himalayas. Despite Nepal’s overall above-average flight safety performance, Yeti Airlines has been involved in multiple fatal accidents, raising serious concerns. The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has identified gaps in Nepal’s aviation safety standards, prompting a call for prioritized assistance to improve the nation’s air travel safety.

PNG Air

In Papua New Guinea, air travel is essential due to the geographical challenges of the region. PNG Air, formerly known as Milne Bay Air and Airlines PNG, rebranded in 2015 following a series of fatal crashes. The airline’s history of accidents, combined with the absence of the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification and ICAO’s concerns about local aviation safety and regulation, paints a concerning picture of its commitment to passenger safety.

These findings, particularly the low safety ratings assigned by AirlineRatings.com, highlight the critical need for passengers to exercise caution and prioritize safety when choosing an airline, especially in regions with challenging flying conditions and inconsistent regulatory oversight.
