B&H and Croatia Airlines top EX-YU safety

B&H Airlines and Croatia Airlines score high in AirlineRatings safety review

B&H Airlines and Croatia Airlines have been named the safest airlines in the former Yugoslavia, in an annual global review conducted by “AirlineRatings”. For a third consecutive year, the two carriers scored highest for safety, receiving six out of seven stars, ahead of Adria Airways and Air Serbia, which settled for five stars. Montenegro Airlines received a ranking of four stars. B&H, Croatia Airlines and Montenegro Airlines all scored lower than last year, when the Bosnian and Croatian carriers boasted a perfect seven star score, while Montenegro Airlines received five stars In 2014. On the other hand, Adria and Air Serbia maintained last year’s results.

B&H Airlines and Croatia Airlines fared well as they both have successfully undergone an IATA Operational Safety Audit, are allowed to operate within the European Union, have had no fatalities in the past ten years and are endorsed by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). However, the two airlines failed to receive a perfect score as their countries did not achieve top marks in all eight of the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) safety perimeters. The eight ICAO audit parameters that pertain to safety are legislation, organisation, licensing, operations, airworthiness, accident investigation, air navigation service and airports. Bosnia and Herzegovina scored lower in accident investigation and organisation, while Croatia received lower scores in legislation and airports. These concerns do not necessarily indicate a particular safety deficiency in the air navigation service providers, airlines, aircraft or airports, but, rather, indicates that “the state is not providing sufficient safety oversight to ensure the effective implementation of applicable ICAO standards”, the regulatory body says. It should be noted that “AirlineRatings’” scorecard for EX-YU airlines is based on ICAO's last audits conducted between 2009 and 2011.

Australia’s Qantas Airways has been declared the world’s safest airline for a third year in a row, followed by Air New Zealand, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Etihad, EVA Air, Finnair, Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines. "AirlineRatings" is the first website to independently rate airlines on safety. The company’s rating system is endorsed by ICAO and rates 449 carriers. “AirlineRatings” has been used by millions of passengers from 232 countries. The editorial team has won almost fourty international and national awards and have also authored or co-authored more than 27 industry books.

  1. Ofcourse JA would be the safest - their planes barely lift off the ground!

  2. Cyprus Airways suspended operations on Friday, after the European Commission ordered it to pay back 65 million EUR in state aid, plus interest. Let me just remind you that this is 3 times less than Serbian government will pay for debts of its own state company Jat, or less than last year debt of Air Serbia.

    9. Your math neglects one small fact: what Serbia does with ASL is investing in a joint venture project with Etihad Airways. It is not a simple pouring of cash to cover annual losses as was the case with Malev and Cyprus.

      What Serbia does is exactly the same as what Italy does. You were probably too busy doing your dodgy math so you missed the news that Italian government will pay TWO BILLION EURO of Alitalia's debts. In your math this probably means Alitalia is already dead. However, both Alitalia and Air Serbia equations have some variables your math is completely unaware of. I would suggest you to do some additional education before you start advertising your math skills again.

    11. Actually, the investment in Air Serbia, Alitalia or Air Berlin is still qualified as throwing money into the wind. It will be just that until one of these airlines becomes self-sustaining, financially stable and actually profitable.

    17. @ 2:34, 2:41 and 2:48 (three split personalities of a single hater):

      No, this is not Dane or anyone related to ASL in any way. This is just someone who had some education and knows how to tell serious math from 2+2=5 (your math).

      Time will show whether Etihad's investments were throwing of money or smart business deals. Bottom line is they are INVESTMENTS and NOT the type of state aid the EU forbids. Your math may put '=' between them as many times as you wish, but it will not make it true.

      A joint venture becoming profitable and a legacy carrier receiving state aid against the EU rules are two very different things. Your math may put '=' between them as many times as you wish, but it will not make it true.

      Finally, even if ASL fails and goes bust it will not be the end of the world. Airlines go bust here and there, it is a tough industry. At least they tried to do something and it was a worthy effort. Maybe they make it, maybe they don't. It is how the market works. And you can damn well be sure it is better to try and fail then to live your life preaching to yourself and others about 2+2=5.

    22. Italia did not invest in Alitalia.

      Etihad Airways’ investment of €560 million will be provided through a combination of equity injections, asset purchases and other financing facilities and funding arrangements to re-structure the airline’s balance sheet. This is to be complemented by a further equity investment of €300 million from existing core Alitalia shareholders, including Intesa San Paolo (€88m), Poste Italiane (€75m), UniCredit (€63.5m), Atlantia (€51m), IMMSI (€10m), Pirelli (€10m) and Gavio (€2.5m).

      Additionally, up to €598 million in financial restructuring of short and medium term debt has been provided by financial institutions and existing bank shareholders. €300 million of new loan facilities have also been extended by Italian financial institutions.

      Unlike this in Serbia all debts and investments were paid by Republic of Serbia.

      Опет овај свакодневно мрачи као да је Дарт Вејдер. На Мрачној страни се изгледа не објављују вести колико су година Остријан или Кроејша били у губицима и како је то и даље велико бацање пара јер изгледи на дуже стазе нису добри.

      Само неко ко је на Тамној страни може да каже како Италија није улагала у Алиталију. Од оснивања Алиталија је само једне године била профитабилна све остало су губици, наравно да је држава улагала! Подаци о аферама су бројни.

      Наравно да Алиталија жели да се ослободи такве прошлости, зато је уговор са Етихадом чист. Одобрен је од Европске Комисије (као и уговор Ер Србије!) уз минимални услов препуштања слотова на Рим-Београд линији. То је истина, остало је мрачење. Као правни лек Дарт Вејдер може да пише Европској Комисији и нада се промени, а до тада ћу морати овде да користим Силу на страни Добра да би га средио!

      For god's sake, will you stop writing about things you know nothing about???

      Alitalia was TWICE cleared from all debts by the state (in 2008 and 2014) and on both occasions a new legal entity was created (Alitalia carried on as the brand) and started from zero, whereas the old entity went into the government's ownership along with ALL its debts. These debts now accumulate to TWO BILLION EURO - property of Italian state, that is, taxpayers.

      Also on both occasions the small shareholders were completely screwed - their shares became worthless overnight. These are the facts so you may wish to adjust that propaganda of yours a bit because it is really easy to handle.

      Back in Serbia, Etihad DID INVEST AND WILL FURTHER INVEST in ASL. There are several publicly available documents and sources that support this and the entire investment plan is clearly visible.

      I understand that your biggest wish in life is to somehow make 2+2=5 but that will simply not work. Try discovering something less complex than aviation because your league is way below it.

    27. Italia was not clear any debts to Alitalia in 2008 and 2014. That is typical Vucic stile lie.

      But I don't know why you put Croatia into this discussion. EU have a rules, if Serbia want to open first charter you will stop with subvention in second and for sure will have review on this deal with Etihad.

      And it is also not true that EU allow Etihad-Jat deal. There is investigation about it, it is no finished and for sure there is no any document which allows this contract.

      Delete
    28. OK, so you will advertise your lies as truth and you will put a Vucic label on arguments that can be so easily verified - it is all available online, just a few clicks away.

      No argument with such troll makes any sense, so just one final note: that superior tone you use to address the entire nation ('If you want this, you will stop that') you can take home to your family or hamster or whoever - and you can practice your supremacy on them. Outside of your lair you have no higher ground over anyone.

      "Under the guise of a rather quaint (and distinctly un-EU) desire to maintain the Italian-ness of the company, a group of wealthy Berlusconi cronies was enticed into taking over the healthy portions of Alitalia, leaving its debts to the Italian taxpayers. The rules of bankruptcy were changed in the middle of the game to meet the government's needs. Berlusconi pulled this one off, but his involvement probably cost the Italian taxpayers a lot of money"

      Ово је са Википедија странице о Алиталији, у вези са дуговима у 2008 години.

      Какве везе има Кроација? Па у губицима је била годинама пре уласка у ЕУ, ко је покривао те дугове? Наравно држава. Сад се праве блесави.

      "And it is also not true that EU allow Etihad-Jat deal. There is investigation about it, it is no finished "

    33. Not true. Last press Release of European Commission about Air Serbia-Etihad deal was on 14th November 2014 and it was about investigation that was on. No information about subjects was after that date.

      Concerning All nation, sorry to inform you but if you want even to open 1st chapter of negotiation you must act by EU rules. EU will not change because of Serbia, but Serbia will change a lot if it wants to come to us, to EU. Or if that will not happened you will not come even near to EU.

      Stop spreading open lies here.
      If state subsidies were subject to scrutiny by EU for the opening of charter negotiations HR wouldn't close them for example, as their Government was supporting OU for years prior to joining the EU. It is, of course, a different story once you become a member state.
      So spare us in the future of your wishful thinking regarding JU, its there to stay and grow stronger.

  3. In the last 10 days BH has canceled 80% of their flights to/from BEG. This is getting ridiculous. The chance of that flight actually taking off are 1 in 5. There are casino games that have better odds. When you have performance like that top safty rating doesn't mean much. Disagree? Then you go buy a 100EUR ticket and than take that 1 in 5 chance you actually get to fly!

    1. They cancel the flight if there are no enough passengers.
      So where is the problem?

      You can just take the next Air Serbia flight from BEG to SJJ if JA is cancelled.

      Besides: almost all flights to Copenhagen and Zurich are being operated.

      Only the BEG route is often being cancelled due to poor demand in the winter.

    2. Very unprofetional. If passengers wanted latter flight they will use it. No one wake up at 4 o'clock during night if one does not need to be on plane so early.
