About was developed to provide everyone in the world with a one-stop-shop for everything airline related, trained by a team of aviation editors, who have done forensic research on almost every airline in the world.

Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars for security – seven being the highest rating. Within each airline you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits by aviation governing bodies, major associations, as well as airlines, of their own safety data. Each airline has a breakdown of safety ratings so you can see exactly how they rank.

Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99% of passengers worldwide have a product rating. Since low-cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different, we’ve built a different rating system for each, which can be found within each airline. has information on over 30 aircraft types, from the latest Boeing 787 to the A380 and smaller jets.

Even better, there are simple answers to many original questions, including:

  • “What are all those noises after takeoff and before landing?
  • “Why do you have to raise the blinds to land and take off? »
  • “What is a winglet and what is it for?
  • “Why is it so expensive to fly short distances? »
  • “How often is an aircraft serviced?
  • “How strong is a wing?”
  • “How do they test planes”
  • “How often should airplane tires be replaced?”
