(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Emirates and Etihad Airways have established their position as most sought-after airlines in the aviation industry for their world-class services and safety. That's the reason both the carriers have also earned the distinction of being ranked among top 10 safest airlines in the world last year



Emirates ranked fourth followed by Etihad at 5th in the ranking. Emirate's close partner Qantas Airways topped the list after going without a fatal crash since 1951, according to AirlineRatings.com's latest study. The world's only safety and product rating website has announced its top 10 safest airlines for 2013 from the 448 it monitors



The top 10 airlines earned seven stars for safety and in-flight products, the highest any airline can get. The remaining airlines in the top 10 in alphabetical order are Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Eva Air, Royal Jordanian, Singapore Airlines and Virgin Atlantic

And 2013 was the safest for flying since 1945, with only 269 deaths from 29 accidents. According to the Aviation Safety Network the results are well below the 10-year average of 32 accidents and 719 fatalities
