Answer: Air travel remains the safest mode of transport with just 0.07 deaths per one billion passenger miles. Flying on one of the world’s major airlines, on any single flight, you have a 1 in 4.7 million chance of being killed, according to PlaneCrashInfo.com, which tracked accident data from 1993 to 2012. Even if you’re flying on one of those with the worst safety records, your odds are still 1 in 2 million. “The most dangerous part of your airline flight is the trip to the airport,” said aviation and national security expert Carl Rochelle.
