  • Abstract:
    The deregulation of the commercial airline industry in 1978 has stimulated the

    formation of a significant number of new airlines. For example, a total of 79

    airlines with fewer than 5 years of operating experience provided scheduled

    service to the public from January 1990 through December 1994. This report by

    the General Accounting Office (GAO) addresses (1) the safety performance of new

    airlines (airlines having 5 or fewer years of operating experience) compared

    with that of established airlines (airlines with more than 5 years of experience)

    in terms of accidents, incidents, and Federal Aviation Adminstration-initiated

    enforcement actions and (2) the frequency with which FAA inspects new airlines

    compared with its inspections of established airlines. In addition, the GAO also

    assessed the status of FAA's efforts to correct long-standing problems that

    limit the effectiveness of its overall safety inspection program. Finally, this

    report discusses publishing airline-specific safety data for use by the

    traveling public. 52p.
