Scandinavian Airlines: world’s most punctual

SAS is only major airline to achieve punctuality higher than 90%

Scandinavian Airlines was the world’s most punctual airline during April, according to the independent source Flightstats. It was the only major airline worldwide to achieve punctuality higher than 90%, with the carrier scoring 90.78%. SAS has been named Europe’s most punctual airline for the past three years. Flightstats tracks the performance of more than 150,000 flights per day.
In April, 17,782 flights out of 19,701 arrived on time. SAS Group subsidiaries Widerøe and Blue1 were also among Europe’s best performers with 91.95% and 90.17% punctuality scores, respectively.
SAS CEO Rickard Gustafson put the result down to his employees “working very hard to ensure our operation is as smooth as possible” and products such as Fast Track, the SAS Smart Pass and check-in facilities that can be used from home or a mobile.
