Which airlines get you there on time?

 

The picture above has probably tipped you that the world's most punctual airline title has been grabbed by Panama's Copa Airlines. But you might be surprised how many less-known carriers are close behind, and how many familiar names are missing.

From data compiled by OAG, the Official Airline Guide, here are the ten-best performers in arriving within 15 minutes of schedule.

  • Copa Airlines - 89.79 per cent of flights on time
  • airBaltic - 89.17%
  • Hong Kong Airlines - 88.11%
  • Hawaiian Airlines - 87.52 %
  • Bangkok Airways - 87.16%
  • Qantas Airways - 85.65%
  • Latam Airlines - 85.6%
  • Azul - 85.21%
  • Qatar Airways - 85.17%
  • KLM - 84.52%


And if you're wondering what happened to the big-name carriers that didn't make the list, here is OAG's list of the 20 largest airlines (with one exception) and their records. Only Latam made both lists. Data was not available for Ryanair, which claims to be at or near the top among European on-timers.
