Ranking of 'on-time flights' shows how competition between Aer Lingus and Ryanair is a good thing
We imagine the PR folks at both of these companies are quite happy with these results today.
The people at Which? have posted the results of an analysis of over 850,000 flights from around the world, showing how many journeys managed to land in their destinations on time (or at least within a 15-minute window of the pre-set time of arrival).
Good news on the Irish front, as Aer Lingus managed to rank fourth in the entire world, behind only KLM from the Netherlands, Iberia from Spain, and Qatar Airways from, uhm, Qatar.
Ryanair didn't do too shabbily either, ranking 13 out of the 35 airlines that were covered by the data supplied by the Civil Aviation Authority.
Down at the very bottom of the list however were Canadian company Air Transat, which managed to have only 55% of their flights land on time, followed closely by IcelandAir (56%) and Norwegian Airlines (60%).
The full results are as follows:
|AURIGNY AIR SERVICES||78.43%|
|SOUTH AFRICAN AIRWAYS||72.58%|
