Finnair top in world punctuality rankings

Finnair has been the most punctual international airline for the past two months, according to travel data provider FlightStats. With 93.83 per cent of flights arriving or departing within 15 minutes of schedule in May and 91.14 per cent in April, Finnair is currently the world’s most reliable international carrier according to the data services firm, which supplies the travel industry and general public with real-time global flight tracking information.

“There are all kinds of factors out of an airline’s control that can cause delays to passengers and loss of revenue, but these rankings highlight the degree to which dedicated employees working in well-defined processes can proactively and positively manage on-time performance,” says Chief Operating Officer Ville Iho. “I’m very proud of this impressive achievement, both among our own employees and those of our key partners.”

In FlightStats’ rankings for the year 2012, Finnair was runner-up for lowest global cancellation rate and a runner-up for most punctual European airline. The oneworld alliance, of which Finnair is a member, was named the alliance with the best on-time performance.
