The aerospace industry has continued to become safer throughout the years, and 2023 was a year in which no large turbofan-powered aircraft were involved in any major fatal accidents. As a result, 2023 will go down in history as the safest in the history of commercial aviation.

There have been a few smaller incidents, including two fatal incidents involving non-jet-powered airliners.

2023 also saw a record-low fatality rate when it came to major air accidents, according to to70. Of over 50 safety emergencies that arose onboard commercial aircraft, only two led to loss-of-life incidents, a fatality rate that significantly improves upon six fatal crashes out of 33 such situations in 2022.
