Window Seat 04 Jan 18

THE global travel and tourism industry should today be thanking its collective lucky stars for the election of Donald Trump as US president – at least when it comes to air safety.

Just in case you missed it, there were no commercial aviation fatalities in the US last year – and Trump is claiming all of the credit.

After the release of the latest safety statistics (TD yesterday) Trump was quick to take to Twitter, sending a message “Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation. Good News – it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!”.

A number of commentators have pointed out that there have in fact been no jet passenger deaths in the US since 2009.
