The 2013 airliner accident statistics released by the Aviation Safety Network on January 1, 2014 shows a record low total of 265 airliner accident fatalities, as a result of 29 fatal airliner accidents. Thus, the year 2013 was a very safe year for commercial aviation: the number of fatalities is significantly lower than the ten-year average of 720 fatalities. Three out of 29 accident airplanes (10%) were operated by airlines on the E.U. “black list” as opposed to three out of 23 (13%) the year before.
