Airline safety is on the rise, but near accidents are still more common than you might think.

No. 10: Dallas/FortWorth

12 of 21

Score: 2.86

Runway Incidents: 61

Close Calls: During one 30-day period in 2008, the airport racked up 10 near misses.

The Fix: In 2008, Dallas/Fort Worth launched the first phase of a revolutionary perimeter taxiway system that increases runway safety—and decreases the possibility of close encounters—by allowing aircraft to taxi around DFW’s seven active runways rather than crossing them.
