Fear of flying is common; as many as one in five people suffer from some form of aviophobia.

If you or your boss must fly for business, this news should help calm your fears:

The National Transportation Safety Board issued a Safety Report on accidents between 1983 and 2000, reports USA Today. The report concluded that on commercial U.S. airlines, 95.7% of the occupants survived.

Also, more than 80% of the occupants survived in 528 of the 568 accidents recorded during that period.

Even better news: Airplanes are increasingly being retrofitted with airbags, due to a new government regulation.

In other words, surviving an accident is not only possible but increasingly likely.
