Operates the Safest Mode of Transportation
PASSENGERS TRANSPORTED EVERY DAY
Commercial air travel is the safest form of intercity transportation in the United States. Every day U.S. airlines transport more than 2.3 million passengers and more than 55,000 tons of cargo. Safety is our number one priority. A4A and our member airlines work together with the Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, National Transportation Safety Board, Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration, Customs and Border Protection, aircraft manufacturers, labor and others to provide a safe and efficient travel experience. As a result, the U.S. airline industry is experiencing the safest period in aviation history.
