reviews of airlines?

Does anyone know if there's a way of finding otu about safety and general records for (non-US) airlines?

We're looking into booking tickets to Copenhagen and there's a Danish airline that DH has heard a bad experience of, but are the only direct flights. I don't know if it's a one off or an airline best be avoided...

Thanks :)

Re: reviews of airlines?

  • What's the airline? My husband works in aviation and has to keep up to date on each airline out there.  I think I can help.

  • I actually found this the other night when we were researching our holiday. it's not a review, but a listed of airlines that have a black marked or our banned by the EU.  At least you can see what airline NOT to fly with...

  • Bwah ha ha ha ha! "Safe Airways" is on the banned list. Oh the irony....
  • Is it WizzAir? I think they're ok, nothing special. 

  • It's Cimber Air (which used to be Sterling?). They're the only direct flight, which would be SO much easier with W, but apparently someone DH knows flew them and they had an emergency landing, which has put him off...

    Thanks everyone, I'll have a look at that site!

    I didn't know Sterling was back in operation at all yet.  We flew with them to Copenhagen with no problems.  It was slightly better than RyanAir for a similar price, and they flew to/from the major airports instead of the crap RyanAir-ports.  We didn't have any problems.

    I don't know if they have safety ratings, but I've used www.airlinequality.com to compare foreign carriers before.  They don't seem to have Cimber, though.  Hmm...

  • Honestly lots of airlines have emergency landings - I have been in 2 with major, major airlines. I wouldn't let that put you off flying them.
