Data reveals that airline accidents declined in 2019

The year 2018 was a particularly grim year for the aviation industry. It saw 62 accidents and had a total of 523 fatalities. New York residents will likely be happy to learn that data from January 1, 2019, through December 2, 2019, shows 2019 to be a much better year.

From January 1 to June 15, 2019, 20 airline accidents occurred worldwide. Included in these accidents were one turboprop hull loss and three jet hull losses. There were 201 fatalities during that time that involved jet air crafts. The most memorable was the Ethiopian Airlines flight ET 302. This flight went down on March 10, 2019, just a few minutes after taking off from the airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. All 157 on board lost their lives in this crash. This prompted the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft on March 13.

From June 16 to December 2, 2019, three fatal aviation accidents occurred. This accounted for 26 deaths among crew and passengers. The most notable among the accidents that occurred during the second half of 2019 was the crash that occurred on November 24. The plane was a Dornier 228-200 and took off from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. All 19 on board and 10 on the ground were killed.

The number of fatalities from January 1 through December 2 stands at 237, which includes the 10 who were killed on the ground. There is a continued reduction in aviation accidents.

Being injured in a plane crash or losing a loved one can completely change a person's life. Some have turned to a personal injury attorney in order to find out how they can seek compensation. An attorney might provide information on the steps that need to be taken after an international plane crash and even represent a client in court.
