QAN­TAS was Aus­trala­sia’s most punc­tual air­line last year, ac­cord­ing to a new re­port from flight data ag­gre­ga­tor OAG, which has com­piled its 2018 “Punc­tu­al­ity League” based on 58 mil­lion flight records.

QF came in sixth position on the global rank­ings, with the world’s most on-time car­rier be­ing Panama’s Copa Air­lines with an over­all 89.79% rank­ing.

AirBaltic was in sec­ond spot with 89.17% of flights on time, fol­lowed by Hong Kong Air­lines (88.11%), Hawai­ian Air­lines (87.52%), Bangkok Air­ways (87.16%) and then Qan­tas with 85.65% of flights on time.

In terms of Asia-Pa­cific air­lines, Qan­tas was in third spot af­ter HX and PG, fol­lowed by All Nip­pon Air­ways, Jet­star Asia, Ja­pan Air­lines and Air As­tana.

Sin­ga­pore Air­lines was the re­gion’s eighth most punc­tual car­rier with 83.46% of flights on time, while OAG noted that Air New Zealand and Vir­gin Aus­tralia had both dropped out of the top ten this year.

The re­port also ranks the world’s ma­jor air­ports for their on-time per­for­mance, with Syd­ney and Mel­bourne both ap­pear­ing in the top 20.

Syd­ney was in 17th spot with an on-time rat­ing of 76.1%, just ahead of Mel­bourne at 74.69%.
