Here is a list of the safest airplanes you can consider for your travels.Airbus A380. Airbus A380 photo by Vitaly V.Embraer E-190.

The Airbus A380 is a large wide-body airliner that was developed and produced by Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner and only full-length double-deck jet airliner.
Airbus A380-800 – 79.75m
The A380-800 is the world's biggest passenger plane and is capable of flying up to 853 people on their holidays, although the average number is closer to 600. It is the first commercial airliner to use synthetic liquid fuel, testing the concept in 2008.
Which airplanes crash the most Cessnas and Pipers. In fact, the top 15 aircraft models in total crashes are all made by those two manufacturers – and nine of the top ten are Cessnas. The Cessna 152 was involved in nearly 800 more crashes than any other aircraft.
Utilizing the International Civil Aviation Organization safety occurrence data, from 2008 to 2019, these aircraft were compared in terms of occurrence type, occurrence category, phase of flight, injury level, and fatalities. It was found that Boeing had more accidents than expected, while Airbus had less (p = 0.015).
Qantas. After being crowned the world's safest airline in 2021, Qantas lost the title to Air New Zealand this year. The national carrier is based in Australia and operates routes to New Zealand, the Americas, Asia, South Africa, and Europe.
Are small planes less safe than larger It might seem that way, but there are other contributing factors. "In a nutshell, the size of an airplane is not in any way linked to safety," explains Saj Ahmad, chief analyst at StretegivAero Research.
For some airlines, the A380 offered too much capacity, while for Emirates, the airline can't get enough of the plane. Unfortunately for Emirates (and us passengers), the days of the Airbus A380 are numbered. Airbus stopped A380 production in 2021, as there weren't sufficient orders to keep production going.
Aside from Emirates, a wide range of operators have reactivated the type or brought older models out of storage. Airlines flying the double-decker this year include British Airways, All Nippon Airways, Qatar, Singapore Airlines, and the potentially-merging Korean Air and Asiana Airlines.
Which airlines use the A380 Although the primary users of the Airbus A380 are Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, and Qantas, there are other airlines that use this aircraft. Emirates, however, have the most A380s in their fleet, totalling 94 with another 12 on order.
With 51 million seats, Ryanair is firmly the largest intra-European operator, as shown in the following table and discussed later in the article. Obviously, this is entirely because of its Europe-wide operation versus country-specific hub airlines.
Running since 1929, Hawaiian is among the oldest airlines in the world but, remarkably, it has never suffered a single fatal crash or hull loss.
The Tenerife Airport Disaster is considered to be the deadliest plane crash in aviation history. On March 27, 1977, two Boeing 747s collided on the runway at Tenerife Airport in the Canary Islands. The crash was caused by a series of miscommunications and errors, which resulted in the death of 583 people.
Boeing 707/720 with 4.28 percent per million departures has been deemed as second 'least safe planes'. The UK manufactured Comet and the US manufactured Boeing 737 MAX also lost their reliability after encountering a string of fatal crashes. The ATR-42 is actually one of the least safe models of the analyzed here.
Ryanair has been recognized for its safety
Ryanair has a safety rating of 7 out of 7 from AirlineRatings.com. Ryanair was named one of AirlineRatings.com's Top Ten Safest Low-Cost Airlines for 2022.

Small plane crash rates are higher than those of commercial airlines, with general aviation accidents (which include small planes) showing around 1 accident per 100,000 flight hours, while commercial airlines have approximately 0.16 accidents per 100,000 flight hours.
Losing control of the aircraft is the leading cause of small plane crashes. Smaller planes are more vulnerable to turbulence and other natural hazards in flight. Roughly two aviation accidents occur each week due to losing fuel mid-flight. Wildlife can sometimes pose a threat to a smaller plane.
Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways recently decided that it would bring back the Airbus A380 to support its summer 2023 schedule. With the news, over 70% of the original A380 operators are planning to fly the giant of the skies next summer, though it doesn't look like further airlines will join them.
The A380 was too big
Many airlines did not order the Airbus A380 due to its gigantic size. With a wingspan the size of almost 3 Boeing 737s, it was almost impossible to fill the Airbus A380 to the brim on any route, even the most popular ones.
The A380 production ended with the departure of former Airbus CEO Tom Enders due to a lack of demand; the company had 17 orders in the backlog. After Emirates cut its A380 order by 39 aircraft, leaving just 14 on the backlog, the final decision was reached to terminate production on the A380.
Currently, the world's biggest international airline has on order 50 A350-900s, 30 787-9s and 115 Boeing 777Xs. The airline operates 119 A380s, 123 Boeing 777-300ERs and 10 Boeing 777-200LRs. The 777X aircraft will replace the A380s, while the A350s and 787s will eventually replace the 777s.
The British flag carrier has confirmed the superjumbo will be part of this opening line up, with plans to initially bring back four of its 12 grounded A380s.
The A380 is extremely powerful as well. We use the Engine Alliance GP7200 engines, and it's got a tremendous power to weight ratio – even at max take-off weight at 572 tonnes it's got lots of get up and go. Everyone that flies it really enjoys it.
