Australia’s isolation is proving tourism’s greatest selling point | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Australia's image as a safe haven in an increasingly violent world is doing more for tourism than world-class attractions like the Great Barrier Reef. Research undertaken by Tourism Australia has found Australia is ranked one worldwide as a destination associated with safety and security. Safety and security was also rated the most important factor in selecting a destination by 54 per cent of people in key overseas markets, ahead of value for money and natural beauty and will help the tourism industry continue its strong growth.

Australian attitudes to aviation safety

Australian attitudes to aviation safety | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

According to a Galaxy Research poll conducted for CASA, three out of every four Australians are very or completely confident about the safety of air travel in Australia. The study looked at attitudes towards safety in air travel, with four out of every five Australians believing flying is just as safe or safer today than it was five years ago. Only 3% of respondents said they were not confident in stepping on a plane. The study involved a sample of over 1000 respondents aged 18 years and over from capital and non-capital cities.

Liam Brookes's curator insight, August 2, 2015 7:53 AM

More statistics! Some interesting documents about various things, like fumes in the cabin and the public opinion of CASA. I found the one about the public opinion of CASA particularly interesting, seeing how the figures break up, and the reasoning behind the opinions.

Jaala da Costa 's curator insight, March 16, 11:14 PM
Flying has been shown to be one of the safest modes of travel. With the advances in technology and airport safety, air travel has become safer than driving in a car. As an individual wanting to join the aviation industry I find this very reassuring. Safety of passengers should be one of the number one priorities. Therefore, it is good to see the majority of people being confident in air travel.

The Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report for 2015 rates 141 countries, from the good to the not so good, giving travellers a better idea on places safest to jetset to. Find out more.
