SriLankan Airlines named the world’s most punctual airline

The SriLankan Airlines has been named as the world’s most punctual airline with 90.75 per cent of its flights in May 2019 being ‘on-time’ throughout its route network.

In a statement, SriLankan Airlines said this was the second occasion in less than 12 months that SriLankan Airlines had achieved this milestone, having also achieved the world’s number one ranking in September 2018 with a punctuality rating of 91.37 per cent.

It mentioned that  this achievement is all the more impressive due to the challenges caused by heightened security at SriLankan’s hub at Colombo’s Katunayake International Airport, and clearly demonstrates the extraordinary commitment of the national carrier in providing the finest service to its customers even during a period of adversity.

SriLankan headed the categories of ‘Global Airlines’ and ‘Major Airlines’, among all airlines that are monitored by the flight data analysis company.

In the ‘Global Airlines’ category, second place went to the Brazilian airline LATAM with Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways in third place; while the ‘Major Airlines’ category had All Nippon Airways placing second with GoAir third.

SriLankan has consistently been one of the world’s most punctual airlines over the last 12 months, with 86 per cent of flights departing on time and 85per cent arriving on time from June 2018 through May 2019 on average.

The statement said this is a remarkable achievement that speaks volumes of the efficiency of its processes and its vigorous scrutiny of every operational aspect that could affect punctuality.
