FlightStats, Inc, a leader in global flight information services, part of FlightGlobal, has released the winners for the 8th Annual Airline On-Time Performance Service Awards.
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 eight (8) categories:
- Major International Airlines
- Airline Alliances

- European Major Airlines
- Asia-Pacific Major Airlines
- Middle East & Africa Major Airlines

FlightStats have published the On-time Performance Service (OPS) Awards for the last eight years in an effort to 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.
This year, FlightStats 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.
