Especially when you need to travel domestically, preference should be by road or train. Nowadays many countries have established an excellent infrastructure of rail and road transportation. so travelers should opt for them rather than risking their lives just to save a few hours. It is obvious that for shorter flights, airline companies will not use Boeing planes which are considered much safer then ATRs or Airbus, etc.

In the above articles, It has been mentioned to wear comfortable clothes and shoes while traveling as well as suggested to avoid short clothing. In many of the airline crashes, it has been observed that burns are the main causes of deaths. Textile and airline companies should establish a joint research and development system to prepare the special fabric for airline passengers. This fabric should be in reach of each passenger on their seats. They can cover their bodies before observing any sort of such crashes. This can be helpful to minimize the burning factor in crashes.
6. Wear Good Quality Masks
Although in the current pandemic, Wearing masks may have become compulsory for passengers. But in many cases, this can also help them to avoid inhaling smoke in plane crashes. This might be helpful to save their lives.
We have strong faith that despite taking all the necessary measures, we cannot escape ourselves from death when it has become our destine. Nevertheless; if we need to live more in this world then we can be among survivors like all these ten people. Two more people survived in a recent plane crash in Pakistan as well.
