If you’ve ever booked a flight that ended up delayed, you know how frustrating it can be – especially if that delay is several hours long. However, if you know which airlines are frequently on time, you can use that information to book a more reliable flight next time.
Each year, OAG, a UK-based aviation data monitor, collects data from airlines around the world in order to determine which have the best record of on-time flights. According to the company, an on-time performance for an airline is an arrival or departure that’s within 15 minutes of its scheduled time.
