We all know the tragic loss of 2020. Most of the year was spent in lockdown, nevermind global travel. But we have hope for 2021 as we choose the safest airlines to fly on in 2021.
For most the Covid pandemic made flying feel like a distant memory, and for those who managed to travel it became and alien and dicey proposition in 2020.
For many travellers, and there’s no telling what the state of the airline industry will look like as COVID-19 continues to spread into the New Year. But for those planning to fly in 2021, We have picked the world’s the 10 safest airlines to book a flight on right now.
From today all international arrivals to England, including UK nationals, are required to present a negative COVID-19 test taken no earlier than 3 days prior to departing the country they are in.

Whilst comping these ratings we have evaluated many aspects of air travel. Although our primary concern is still to stay in one piece at 30,000 ft, In 2020 we encountered a new level of problems, a different type of safety. One of the biggest challenges airlines will face in 2021 and onwards is how they will manage a passenger who is a germaphobe on a plane next 2 coughing and sniffling average day travellers.
Whether we agree with or not, that will be an in-flight nightmare.
So to try to be as thorough as possible we have included a number of other tests, including air circulation and quality, COVID-19 measures, the training of staff and of course, airlines ratings to determine which airline deserves the top spots.
Here is the list of the world’s 10 safest airline carriers
