Last year, about 100,000 flights took off around the world every single day. Aviation is still one of the safety ways to travel. Title 49 USC empowers the FAA to prescribe regulations and minimum safety standards and requires air carriers to provide service with the highest possible degree of safety in the public interest. Air carriers, are responsible for safety management, quality assurance and quality control.
Cabin safety plays an important role in maintaining safe aircraft operations, and we continually seek ways to improve cabin safety.
