The World’s Most Punctual Airline (hint: Not United)

Do you feel like you are facing delay after delay on your flights lately?  Do you just wish that you knew which airlines are more reliable?  Statista.com just put out an infograph that shows the most punctual airlines in the world.

Out of all the airlines in the world, airBaltic tops the charts as the world’s most punctual airline with 95% of its flights landing on time (within 15 minutes of scheduled arrival).

From Statista.com:

You will find more statistics at Statista.

Note, I spotted an error in this (and you probably did too).  Iberia is actually tied with Norwegian and KLM at 89.7%.

airBaltic pointed out that their stat means that over 9 out of 10 flights arrive on time.  I’d go one step further and point out this means just about 19 out of 20 flights arrive on time.

Hawaiian Airlines, the #2 airline for punctuality, was one of two American airline companies in the top-20.  The second was Alaska Airlines in the #12 spot.

Sort of funny that neither airline is based out of the contiguous United States.  (I know, I know.  Alaska Airline’s headquarters are in Seattle, but you know what I mean!)
