Eva Air Among World’s Safest Airlines for 2018
Eva Air for the fifth consecutive year has earned a coveted spot among the World’s Safest Airlines for 2018, according to Airlineratings.com, a one-stop airline safety and product rating website for carriers worldwide.
“Our editors have been repeatedly impressed by Eva Air’s attention to detail and its consistent safety record,” said AirlineRatings.com editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas. “Airlines that concentrate on safety also usually offer the best inflight product,” he added.
The website’s editors and content curators are recognized worldwide for their expertise and deep knowledge of the aviation industry. After monitoring and evaluating 409 airlines, they have identified the world’s 20 safest airlines. Each of these airlines has earned AirlineRatings’ maximum seven-star safety rating and met its high standards.
The standards it used for its 2018 safety evaluations represent best airline practices established by aviation governing bodies, associations and governments, in addition to analysis of safety performance over the past 10 years.
AirlineRatings has also recognized Eva’s Premium Economy and Economy Class services in the top-10.
“For more than a quarter of a century, Eva has been uncompromising in its focus on maintenance, repair, upkeep, employee training and service,” the airline said in an announcement. Based on evaluations by the Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC), it has been recognized among the world’s 10 safest airlines by the Aero International Magazine 11 times. Furthermore, it has demonstrated zero-defects in IATA’s Operational Safety Audits (IOSA), performed every two years since 2005.
Additionally, Eva is one of only 10 airlines worldwide to earn Skytrax’s five-star rating for the highest global quality.
The carrier steadily renews and upgrades its fleet by introducing new, advanced models, including Boeing 777-300ERs and Airbus A321-200s. It will begin taking delivery of its first environmentally conscious, fuel-efficient, exceptionally comfortable Boeing 787 Dreamliners this year.
