With the lack of control an individual has while on an airplane, it causes a great deal of stress and anxiety. Many people feel that planes are not safe, or that because they are essentially tubes that fly in the sky, if a malfunction does occur it could be detrimental. While the possibility for malfunctions isn’t unavoidable, planes are by far the safest form of travel. It is important for airlines to relay this information to passengers and perspective passengers because it will allow the public to feel secure and have possibly less anxiety when taking their next flight.
An infographic is a great way to rely airline safety to passengers because it neatly lays out statistics and facts that people may otherwise not be interested in reading. It is also a friendly and softer approach to relaying hard facts.
The International Air Transportation Association (IATA) supports aviation with global standards for airline safety, security, efficiency and sustainability. All information for this specific infographic was taken from the IATA website. The IATA states that 265 airlines are members of their organization. This means that if you fly an airline that is a member, your plane will be held to higher safety standards. It is a good idea for airlines to publicize the fact that they are members because it will further allow people to feel safe.
Airlines can give specific safety statistics regarding their particular fleet of planes to the public. This will allow people to trust their airline. No matter what the facts are it is obvious that planes are by far the safest form of travel. It is important for airlines to relay this information over and over again so it is something the public grasps and feels more confident with.
