Notes and General Disclaimers
The data represents only an estimate of the age and size of that airline's fleet and is not a measure of the risk of flight on that airline. An airline's fleet is generally made up of different aircraft models and the age of individual aircraft within an airline or even within a single aircraft model within that airline may vary greatly. Most of the information on this page was for larger airlines. To look at data for smaller airlines, you may also want to visit the AirFleets.net site for airlines from around the world as well as the FAA Certificate and Fleet Information for Selected US Carriers page, which has additional data on smaller US carriers.
Please review the AirSafe.com Disclaimer section for insights into interpreting this data. Also, only aircraft models that are in the list of aircraft analyzed by AirFleets.net is included in their computation of fleet age.
