(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. Emirate's close partner Qantas Airways topped the list after going without a fatal crash since 1951, according to AirlineRatings.com's latest study. The world's only safety and product rating website has announced its top 10 safest airlines for 2013 from the 448 it monitors
