When Geography Plays A Part: JFK’s Dilemma

It seems that even the most mature markets are capable of a growth spurt. Asset utilisation has been a buzz word for airlines in recent years, getting as many hours flying on an aircraft as possible, pushing productivity to record levels and running an efficient business operation.

OTP, Flight Status

  

OAG's monthly on-time performance review for October 2013

Deirdre Fulton & Becca Rowland

Our regular monthly look back at on-time performance (OTP) this month highlights the consistent great performance of some of Japan’s big airports.  Haneda (HND) achieved 93.4% of flights departing on time in October 2013 while Nagoya (NGO) saw an equally impressive 94.5% of flights leave on time, especially considering it handled 10% more flights than last October.  Both airports are consistently good performers with on time performance typically sitting over 90%.

This is a marked contrast to some of the biggest Chinese airports which struggle to achieve a similar level of performance, although Shanghai (PVG) has seen significant improvement compared to last year with OTP of 62% this year compared to just 51% last October.

Elsewhere in Asia, 15 out of 18 airports in South East Asia reported worse on-time performance than last year – with news this week of the devastating Typhoon Haiyan in the Phillippines it’s tempting to blame the weather or is there an underlying trend?  If we look back over the previous two months, a similar pattern emerges, with only four airports seeing improved OTP in August, and none in September.

Beyond Asia, some European airports have seen some great OTP. Moscow SVO recorded an impressive 99% OTP rate, whilst Malaga (AGP) got over 80% of flights away on time, despite 9% growth.  Beauvais (BVA), just north of Paris continues to show others how it’s done, with 100% of flights leaving on time in October. A positive LCC story!
