SAS named Europe’s most punctual airline

Scandinavian also nominated as most punctual airline in the world

Scandinavian Airlines was yesterday crowned Europe’s most punctual airline by Flightstats, a leading provider of worldwide flight performance information, which has awarded SAS with an On-Time Performance Service Award. SAS was also nominated as the world’s most punctual airline and was the only carrier outside the AsiaPacific region included in the global category.

Amongst regional European airlines, SAS Group’s Norwegian subsidiary Widerøe was one of the finalists. John Dueholm, acting CEO of SAS: “We are very proud to have officially been awarded the title as Europe’s most punctual airline. All our staff, from the check-in and gate to the baggage handlers, work exceptionally hard every day to provide our customers with that unique service that characterizes SAS.

“With our innovative check-in solutions, being amongst the first airlines to introduce Fast Track security and being one of the world’s most punctual airlines, no competitor can come close to SAS in offering time-efficient air travelling.”
