What Are The World’s Most Punctual Airlines?

Experiencing flight delays is a frustrating part of traveling, but can it be avoided?

It depends on who you fly with.

As part of travel intelligence firm OAG’s on-time performance report, analysts broke down around 57 million flight records from 2017 to determine the most punctual carriers using on-time performance (OTP).

To be considered on-time, a flight must arrive or depart within 14 minutes and 59 seconds of their scheduled times.

The US had four carriers in the top ten for mega airlines in OAG’s report. Delta finished third, United Airlines finished seventh, American Airlines finished ninth and Southwest Airlines finished 10th.
