Competition and Safety

  • Ruwantissa Abeyratne


Competition and safety are integrally interlinked, in that an airline’s safety record would act in either promoting the services of an airline or diminishing the airline’s competitive advantage over other carriers which maintain a good safety record. The events of 2014 where aircraft either just disappeared or were shot down, and in one case could not survive adverse weather conditions and just crashed into the sea, have spurred the international community to initiate various measures such as the protection of safety information and warnings with regard to flights over conflict zones.
