FlightStats 2016 Airline On-Time Performance Service Award Winners Announced

January 6, 2017 Accolades No Comments Email Email

FlightStats, Inc., the leader in global flight information services, part of FlightGlobal, has released the winners for the 8th Annual Airline On-Time Performance Service Awards.http://www.banyantree.com/en/ap-thailand-phuket-spa-sanctuary

We have published the On-time Performance Service (OPS) Awards for the last eight years. The awards recognize the “Best of the Best” Airlines that demonstrate consistently high performance and deliver on their promise to get passengers to their destinations in a timely manner.

The FlightStats team is in a unique position to provide this service award given our exceptional commitment to collecting and distributing real-time and historical flight information throughout the global travel ecosystem.

The report covers airlines in the following categories:
Major International Airlines
Airline Alliances
North American Major Airlines
European Major Airlines
Asia-Pacific Major Airlines
Middle East & Africa Major Airlines
Latin American Major Airlines
Low-Cost Carriers

This year, we decided to expand the awards to recognize the best Major Global Airline and best Major Global Airline Network in each of the regional categories as well as the international category. “Network” is defined as a system of flights that are marketed by a major airline but are operated by a separate airline partner. Most big, full-service airlines have these types of regional partnerships where as many as 8-10 carriers operate flights on their behalf.

Our decision to expand the awards is in response to what the industry is telling us. Many airlines want to be recognized only by their own operational performance, not the the performance of their regional airline partners. Some airlines report data to us separately, while other airlines report both mainline and regional status. Since airlines don’t always have operational control over their regional carriers, it didn’t seem fair for us to not distinguish between Major Global Airline performance and Major Global Airline Network performance in our awards. In many cases, the winner is the same for both categories; however, in some cases, they could be different.
