With so many airlines it's hard to know what's actually the safest.

Thankfully, Airline Ratings has put out their 2018 list of the top 10 safest low-cost airlines to fly on. The best part? One of those airlines flies out of Stewart International Airport.

Airlines were ranked on important safety factors like audits from aviation’s governing bodies and lead associations; government audits; airline’s crash and serious incident record and the fleet age.

These are the top 10 safest low-cost airlines listed alphabetically:

  1. Aer Lingus
  2. Flybe
  3. Frontier
  4. HK Express
  5. Jetblue
  6. Jetstar Australia/ Jetstar Asia
  7. Thomas Cook
  8. Virgin America
  9. Vueling
  10. Westjet

Jetblue Airways is one of the 5 airlines that flies out of Stewart International Airport. It's nice to know because it makes traveling out of Stewart less worrisome when you know an airline is highly rated.
