South Africa: Mango Airline Ranked 18th Most Punctual Airline in the world

OAG Aviation has released its Punctuality report for 2019.

The report is based on 58 million flight records from 2018, creating a ranking of the best on-time performance (OTP) for the world’s largest airlines.

OAG’s definition of on-time performance (OTP) is flights that arrive or depart within 15 minutes of their scheduled arrival/departure times.

Latin American airline, Copa Airlines, achieved the top spot with an on-time performance of 89.79%. Ranked fourth in the 2018 Punctuality League, the airline has improved OTP by more than 3 percentage points.

Copa Airlines took the lead from airBaltic which dropped into second place by a narrow margin due to a small decline in OTP for the Latvian airline.

The top five was rounded up by Hong Kong Airlines (88.11%), Hawaiian Airlines (87.52%), and Bangkok Airways (87.16%).

Notably, South African low-cost carrier, Mango, featured at 19th on the list with an OTP of 82.88%.

Mango was also named as the most punctual airline in Africa, with no other South African airlines featuring in the top five.
