South African Airways declared the most on time airline in the world for second time

South African Airways (SAA), the most awarded airline on the African continent, has again been declared the most on-time airline in the world. This follows the release of the June 2013 Airline and Airport On-time Performance Report by FlightStats, Inc., the leader in global flight and airport information services.

According to the report, major international airlines on average delivered 75.85% of their flights to the arrival gate within 15 minutes of schedule in June.  Only six major international carriers delivered over 90% of their flights on time; with SAA topping the list with 93.33%, outperforming every other carrier from across the world. 

At Heathrow, Europe’s busiest airport SAA achieved 87% on-time performance, again ahead of target.  ‘It is testament to our people that in such a challenging environment as this, SAA consistently tops the list of the most on-time airlines in the world, providing our customers with professionalism, reliability and award winning customer service,’ said Gary Kershaw, SAA’s General Manager UK & Ireland.
