A new study has shown that British Airways is the safest for female pilots.
The research, which examined more than 7,000 flight crew members on British Airways, found that women had performed better than men in almost all categories compared to the same flights in the US and Canada.
The study analysed data from more than 700 flights that took place between December 2010 and June 2015.
It found that of the 7,542 crew members who reported to British Airways for the period, more than 70% were female, while around 50% were men.
Of the female flight crew, female pilots scored higher on the safety rating than male crew members, and women had the highest percentage of flight crew ratings on a five-point scale, according to the study.
According to the report, British Airways was one of the safest airlines for female flight pilots in terms of ratings, with the lowest ratings for women in terms that included the ability to perform safely in an emergency.
“Women are more likely to be involved in the flight operations, which contributes to an overall safer and more productive flight experience,” said Dr. Joanna T. Miller, a British Airways pilot, in a statement.
British Airways has been working on female flight safety for years.
It introduced its “Women in Aviation” campaign in 2016, which aimed to encourage women to take part in flight training.
