Accident Overview: 2016


Culled from IATA's 2016 Airline Safety Performance report, an overview of total accidents, fatal accidents, and fatality totals for commercial aviation flights, specifically scheduled/carter passenger or cargo service. Executive jet operations, training, maintenance/test flights are excluded. IATA defines an accident as an event where the aircraft has sustained major structural damage exceeding $1 million or 10% of the aircraft's hull reserve value, whichever is lower, or has been declared a hull loss. A hull loss is an accident in which the aircraft is destroyed or substantially damaged and is not subsequently repaired for whatever reason including a financial decision of the owner.
