Moscow, 9 December 2019 – Aeroflot once again took first place in flight punctuality among the 20 largest airlines in the world in November 2019, according to a report by leading international flight analytics agency OAG.
According to OAG's monthly On-Time Performance Report, 92.1% of Aeroflot’s flights operated exactly on schedule during the month. Aeroflot outperformed key competitors and increased its punctuality by 2.3 percentage points compared to its October performance.
OAG previously awarded Aeroflot a five-star rating for punctuality, making Aeroflot the only airline from Russia and the largest airline in Europe in terms of traffic to receive this rating. Only 10% of participants in the OAG On-Time Performance Star Ratings program are awarded the maximum rating.
Aeroflot has firmly established itself as a global leader in terms of flight punctuality due to strict adherence to its own rules for air transportation, including regulations about carry-on dimensions, check-in and boarding time.
High levels of punctuality are not only a boost to an airline's image, but have an economic benefit as well. The more the plane flies, the cheaper the cost per flight hour – and therefore also fares for passengers.
Aeroflot plans to introduce innovations based on modern digital technologies including biometric controls, which will significantly speed up and simplify pre-flight procedures at the airport.
