This marks the airline’s seventh consecutive year to earn a place among the global ratings website’s “safest airlines in the world.” The website’s comprehensive safety-rating factors include audits from aviation’s governing and industry bodies, government reviews, the airline’s crash and serious incident record, profitability, industry-leading safety initiatives and fleet age.

“All airlines have incidents every day and many are aircraft manufacturer issues, not airline operational problems. It is the way the flight crew handles incidents that determines a good airline from an unsafe one,” said Geoffrey Thomas, Editor-in-Chief, AirlineRatings.com.
EVA has not suffered any major accidents since its founding in 1988. From the start, it has made flight safety and service quality its priorities and has faithfully won awards and honors from organizations around the world year after year.
EVA consistently earns high marks from AirlineRatings for quality service, in addition to safety, and ranks eighth in the website’s World’s Top-20 Airlines for 2020. EVA values the support of its passengers and the recognition from experienced aviation professionals. While this honor recognizes the airline’s commitment to safety, it also encourages renewed focus.
The airline is continuing to upgrade and improve its services by introducing new aircraft, including Boeing 787 Dreamliners, and working with some of the world’s leading fashion and lifestyle brands such as Jason Wu and Ferragamo. These efforts and investments are part of EVA’s commitment to making passengers’ flying experiences more comfortable and enjoyable.
