"The macabre but exhaustive website planecrashinfo.com (http://www.planecrashinfo.com/cause.htm) put the odds of being killed on a single airline flight at about
one in 4.7 million
across 78 major world airlines; among the airlines with the worst safety records, the odds rise to
one in 2 million."

A recent report from the National Safety Council put the lifetime odds of dying as a pedal cyclist at
1 in 4,982.

on a motorcycle that number jumps up to
1 in 907 .

as a pedestrian
1 in 749.


And as the occupant of a car a staggering
1 in 415.


the death risk for passengers of commercial airlines is one in 45 million flights (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/12/business/2012-was-the-safest-year-for-airlines-globally-since-1945.html).
According to The New York Times, a traveler could fly every day for 123,000 years and still be safe. Although travel fatality statistics are represented in a variety of formats, commercial airlines are the safest mode of transport any way you look at it.
