The study on 57 million flight records, used full-year data from 2017 to rank the world’s airlines and airports best on-time performance (OTP). OTP characterises flights that occur within 15 minutes of their scheduled arrival or departure times.
To qualify for inclusion in the Punctuality League , flight status data for at least 80 percent of all scheduled flights operated by the airline or for the airport must be provided.
Stefan Pichler, CEO, Royal Jordanian, commented, “Let me congratulate our operations team for this outstanding performance. Punctuality is a must for any world-class airline.”
