A plane crash in Nepal on Friday has killed 19 people, among them seven Britons. It is thought the tragedy occured when the aircraft hit a large bird of prey.

Run by local airline, Sita Air, the twin-engined Dornier plane crashed at 6.18am on the banks of the Manohara river. Last year, 19 people were also killed when a flight by Buddha Air crashed during a flight to view Mount Everest.

Airliner safety is recorded by organisations that compile the data for all airliners worldwide – we last published the results of these in 2010.

Thanks to the consultancy Ascend Worldwide we have the latest data for the most popular airliners. Terror attacks are not included. The data shows the number of accidents that have occurred and the number of fatalities by airliner.

As the chart above illustrates the A320 family has the largest fleet with 4,892 currently operating. In 2010, the Boeing 737 (NG) had the highest number of operating airliners worldwide with 3,274.

The highest number of passenger fatalities has been on the Boeing 737 ‘Classic’ with over 3,600 deaths. Fatalities and fatal accidents have been recorded from the date of each type of airliners entry into service up to today, 28th September 2012. In the case of the Boeing 737 ‘Classic’ this can be as long ago as the 1960s.

The Boeing 737 ‘Classic’ also recorded the highest number of fatal accidents with 62 incidents. The ATR 42/72 introduced into service in 1985 and 1989 respectively have recorded 9 fatal accidents as has the A320 family. With 17 fatal accidents, the Boeing 737 (CFMI) had, had the highest number of fatal accidents in 2010.

The table below shows how many of each type of airliner is currently operating, the number of fatalities and the number of fatal accidents. We’ve also included the 2010 figures in our downloadable spreadsheet. What can you do with this data?
