MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Australia's Qantas Airways flag carrier was named on 2 January the safest airline in the world for 2020, followed by Air New Zealand and Taiwanese EVA Air, the AirlineRatings.com aviation portal reported.

Government and industry-related audits, crash and serious incident records, profitability and fleet age were among many evaluation factors, according to the media outlet.

Qantas was the lead airline in terms of performance related to the work of crew members, the use of automatic landing systems, as well as the real-time engine monitoring systems used to identify problems before they can cause serious malfunctions.
