The highly-anticipated Punctuality League report is back.
Another year, another look at on-time performance for the world's airlines and airports and 2019's edition makes for some very interesting analysis, especially as sitting on top of this year's league is a brand new winner in airline punctuality.
Dethroning 3-time winner airBaltic was no easy task, but in 2018, Copa Airlines topped the ranking as the most punctual airline in the world with OTP of 89.79%, becoming the first-ever Latin American winner of the League.
In fact, it's been a brilliant year for South America as LATAM Airlines Group came first in our Mega Airlines category with on-time performance of 85.60%, climbing a remarkable seven places and knocking Japan Airlines off top-spot. The success follows in our Medium Airports category as Panama City climbs from 3rd to 1st.
We also welcome five new entrants in the Small Airports category, with Minsk going on to claim first place, but it is Japan which continues its excellent standards by winning the Large Airport and Mega Airport categories with Osaka and Tokyo Haneda respectively holding onto the top spots.
With so many airlines and airports anticipating this report, it's no wonder the Punctuality League is being recognised as the world's definitive measurement of on-time performance. There's plenty of hot topics and discussions set to arise from these results, so make sure you're part of the action and download your very own copy using the form at the top of this page.
