OAG is back with its annual comprehensive ranking of on-time performance (OTP) for the world’s airlines and airports. View the results in OAG’s Punctuality League 2019 .
Highlights from this year’s report:
Dramatic OTP improvements earned Latin American-based Copa Airlines the title of the world’s most punctual airline (OTP 89.63 percent). Regional peer LATAM Airlines Group trailed closely behind in eighth (OTP 85.3 percent).
AirBaltic (OTP 89.41 percent) retained its place as the most punctual airline in Europe and the second most punctual in the world.
Air traffic control (ATC) issues negatively impacted major airports across Europe. Paris CDG, a regular contender among the world’s Mega Airports, fell out of this year’s top 20. Despite similar declines in on-time performance (OTP), London Heathrow (15th; OTP 74.54 percent) and Frankfurt (19th; OTP 70.83 percent) both managed to hold onto top 20 spots.
