The safest airline in the world
Qantas was the first airline in the world to operate flights with
Lockheed Super Constellations. And it was the first airline outside the United States to receive a Boeing 707.
Qantas was among the first long-haul airlines to operate aircraft equipped with 2 engines. It has contributed substantially to the development of the air navigation system.
In 1962, Qantas ushered in the era of on-board recorders, which can monitor aircraft operating parameters and crew communication. At that time, 6 parameters were monitored. Today's FDRs (flight data recorder), recognized as the "black boxes", can monitor thousands of parameters.
And let's not forget that Qantas is also the first airline to connect Australia with Europe by direct flight. We talk about the route Perth - London with Qantas, which was inaugurated in 2018.
The plane, the safest means of transport
The plane is the safest means of transport. We do not say it by itself, but the figures say it. According to Aviation Safety Network, In 2018 there were 15 accidents with victims, in which 556 people lost their lives.
The report was issued following the monitoring of 37 800 000 commercial flights. Flightradar24 mentioned in a report that it was monitoring over 63 million flights: commercial, military, business and more.
