Great thing is that in both of the above crashes, majority of the passengers and the crew survived.

For frequent fliers, these tips can be a life-saver before, during and after an airline crash;

  • When packing, make sure you have some sort of small wet towel or cotton cloth that you can breathe through the smoke-filled cabin. Listen carefully to the air-hostess showing the use of air mask.
    .
  • Place cushions in front of your legs and between your legs while making a fetal (forward bowing) seating position to brace for the crash.

  • Stay low to the ground to avoid smoke.

  • Keep your seat-belt fastened and know how to unlock it.

  • Be aware of the exits.

  • When booking, try seats at the back since they have 40% more survival rates.

  • Avoid carrying sharp objects in your pockets or around you i.e. pen, etc.

  • Majority of crashes happen during the take-off and landings. Brace yourself for such a possibility.

And don’t forget to spend 2 to 22 minutes watching these life-saving video tips just in case you are scared of a plane crash or carry a fear of flying;
