SriLankan, most punctual global airline in Sept - Flightstats.com

SriLankan Airlines has achieved the remarkable feat of being named the world’s most punctual airline in the month of September 2018 in the key categories of ‘Global Airlines’ and ‘Major Airlines’, by the flight data analysis company Flightstats.com.

An extraordinary 91.37% of SriLankan Airlines’ flights in September 2018 were on time according to an analysis by Flightstats (www.flightstats.com).

Flightstats analyses data of airlines across every continent - Europe, North America, Asia, the Middle East, and South America – including most of the world’s largest and most prestigious airlines. Airlines are categorised among four categories – ‘Global Airlines’, ‘Major Airlines’, ‘Regional Airlines’ and ‘Low Cost Carriers’ – with some airlines appearing in more than one category.

In the ‘Global Airlines’ category, SriLankan’s punctuality was far ahead of the giant U.S. based carrier Delta Airlines that was in second place with 86.74% flights on time, while third place went to the Japanese airline ANA with 86.61% on time. In the ‘Major Airlines’ category, SriLankan was easily ahead of India’s IndiGo that was in second place with 86.92% of flights being on time, and ANA which was third.

SriLankan’s exceptional performance came on the heels of the airline having launched its dynamic new ‘Ready to Fly!’ program at the beginning of September 2018.
