WHAT IS OTP?

On-time performance (OTP) data is critical to understanding the performance of airlines and airports.

Across the aviation industry, an airline departure or arrival occurring within 15 minutes of the scheduled time is considered on-time.

OTP is a crucial key performance indicator for airlines and airports, it helps to gauge their efficiency and also has the potential to set them apart from their competitors.

UNDERSTANDING THE DATA

On-time performance data shows the percentage of flights that have arrived (for airlines) or departed (for airports) on-time. 

A flight is considered on-time if it has departed or arrived within 15 minutes of the schedule.

The higher the percentage, the better the OTP score.

Cancellations are included in our data and are considered not on-time.
