The air­ports at Chen­nai, Hy­der­abad and New Delhi also fea­ture in the an­nual re­port of air­lines and air­ports with the best on-time per­for­mance (OTP) in the world. How­ever, low-cost car­ri­ers that de­pend on a quick turn around and ef­fi­cient op­er­a­tions do not make it in the ‘ Top 5’. Span­ish LCC Vuel­ing the most punc­tual air­line, is ranked sev­enth with an OTP of 85.25 per cent and a cov­er­age of 82.2 per cent of its flights. It is closely fol­lowed by an­other LCC, JetStar Asia with OTP of 85.08 per cent and a cov­er­age of 86.5 per cent.

In the ‘Mega’ air­lines cat­e­gory, IndiGo is ranked fourth among all air­lines in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion. Mega air­lines are the Top 20 air­lines of the world mea­sured by num­ber of flights despatched. AirAsia In­dia and Spice­Jet join IndiGo in the global ‘ Top 20 LCC’ cat­e­gory. Aditya Ghosh, Pres­i­dent, IndiGo said, “On Time Per­for­mance is one of our core prom­ises to our cus­tomers and it is also one of the three things that IndiGo stands for. We are de­lighted that we have se­cured a spot amongst the top five mega air­lines glob­ally in terms of OTP in the OAG Punc­tu­al­ity League 2018.”
