 Despite MH370, MH17, QZ8501 Disasters, 2014 Named Safest in 111 Years of Flight

Despite the Malaysian Airlines' MH370, MH17 and AirAsia QZ8501 disasters, 2014 has been named as one of the safest years in 111 years of flight, by the Aviation Safety Network.

However, it was announced before the AirAsia QZ8501 tragedy that occurred on Sunday, reported the Daily Star.


The number of passenger fatalities was 526 in 19 accidents, 150 deaths below the decade's average of 676 deaths over 32 accidents, according to the ASN.

Harro Ranter, the founder and director of ASN said that 2014 had the lowest number of plane accidents in the modern aviation history.

The fatality rate for road accidents is 62 times greater than the civilian airliners, said experts.

However, Paul Hayes, the director of safety at aviation consultancy Ascend said that 2014 has been a freak year for high profile incidents.
