TOKYO: Airlines had the lowest crash rate in history in 2010, with one accident for every 1.6 million flights for Western-built jets, said the International Air Transport Association on Wednesday.

For all airplane types, there were 94 aviation accidents worldwide, 23 of them fatal, with a total death toll of 786 compared to 685 the previous year, the association said in annual safety data data released in Tokyo.
