For the first time in aviation history, in 2017, not a single person died anywhere in the world because of a jet airliner accident.

However, one man died in the crash of a Canadian ATR42 turboprop in December.

The chance of dying in an airline crash now is about 1 in 50 million, according to a recent analysis.
