    • 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.
