SAA declared most on time in the world

16 July 2013, 07:37Fin24

Johannesburg - South African Airways (SAA), the most awarded airline on the African continent, has 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, a provider of 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, down from May’s 80.70%.

Only six major international carriers delivered over 90% of their flights on time; with SAA topping the list with 93.33%, outperforming several reputable carriers from across the world.

“It is very gratifying to note that for the last five months, SAA has managed to achieve over 90% on-time performance and remarkably topping the list of the most on-time airlines in the world on three occasions during the same period," said Zuks Ramasia, SAA’s general manager for operations.

"This speaks volumes about the commitment and determination that our staff put into their duties in order to consistently provide a professional and reliable service to our valued customers."
