This airline is the most punctual carrier of 2019 so far

LATAM has claimed the highest ranking for on-time flights for three out of seven months so far in 2019, making it the most punctual airline right now.

The Latin American carrier is currently on a roll, according to FlightStats, taking out the highly coveted title in both June and July, as well as April. The title was taken from LATAM in May by SriLankan Airlines.

Alitalia is the second most punctual, taking out both February and March, almost giving LATAM a run for its money, while Iberia won in January.

July’s win was a particularly big milestone for LATAM, as it coincided with peak travel seasons in South America and the Northern Hemisphere, but 86.73 per cent of close to 44,000 LATAM flights still managed to arrive within 14 minutes of their scheduled itinerary.

“We understand that punctuality is one of the most important factors in the travel experience of our passengers,” said Hernán Pasman, vice president of operations at LATAM, said.

“LATAM’s historic results in recent months are the product of a range of initiatives that we have been implementing, from new working methods that prioritise execution and operational excellence, to a new boarding process.

“We will keep striving to ensure our passengers’ flights continue to depart and arrive on time.”
