Are budget airlines safe?

Flying can be an intimidating prospect, especially if you do not do it often. It also can be expensive. Californian airports are often packed and the demand for flights is high, so airlines can charge high rates for seats. However, there are new airlines catering to people who do not want to spend a fortune to fly. These budget airlines may leave you wondering what corners have been cut to offer such low rates. You may also be curious as to whether they are even a safe option.

Travel and Leisure puts your mind at ease by explaining that regardless of how much an airline charges you for a seat, it still has to meet specific safety requirements and pass inspections. So, the short answer is that budget airlines are just as safe as the more expensive ones.

To go into more detail, all airlines are regulated by The Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA sets strict guidelines for certification and other safety measures. All airlines have to follow FAA rules and regulations. The budget airlines have no exceptions when it comes to safety. In fact, many budget airlines receive higher safety ratings than their more expensive counterparts.

So, you have nothing to be concerned about when it comes to whether you are safe flying on a budget airline. Instead, you will sacrifice comfort. The seats may be smaller, the food will not be as plentiful or good. You may have less storage space as well, but your general well-being is being looked after.
