According to The Aviation Safety Network 2017 was the safest year in aviation history, with total of 10 fatal airliner accidents with 44 onboard fatalities. Out of which nobody died in a commercial jet accident.

In 2016 there were 16 accidents and 303 fatalities.

We're now at day 400 with no passenger jet liner accident.

ASN president Harro Ranter said that "Since 1997 the average number of airliner accidents has shown a steady and persistent decline, for a great deal thanks to the continuing safety-driven efforts by international aviation organisations such as ICAO, IATA, Flight Safety Foundation and the aviation industry."

There's around 36800000 flights, which means that there's one fatal passenger flight accident per 7,360,000 flights.

The 10 accidents with 44 onboard fatalities (and 35 on ground) in 2017 were all with cargo and commercial turboprop planes.
