(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.
