UK-based avi­a­tion data mon­i­tors OAG named airBaltic as the world’s most punc­tual air­line for 2014. Out of 42,000 flights op­er­ated by Latvia’s na­tional car­rier, an im­pres­sive 95% ar­rived at their des­ti­na­tions within 15 min­utes of their planned ar­rival time.

Hawai­ian Air­lines and Aus­trian Air­lines came sec­ond and third with punc­tu­al­ity per­for­mances of 93.3 and 90%, re­spec­tively.

Amer­i­can car­ri­ers are con­spic­u­ous by their ab­sence from the list. Out of the world’s top 20 most punc­tual air­lines, 13 are Euro­pean and just two are Amer­i­can. Along with Hawai­ian, Alaska Air­lines was the only other US air­line to break into the top 20, com­ing in twelfth with an on-time per­for­mance of 88.5%.
