SriLankan Airlines has achieved the remarkable feat of being named the world’s most punctual airline in the month of September 2018 in the key categories of ‘Global Airlines’ and ‘Major Airlines’, by the flight data analysis company Flightstats.com. An extraordinary 91.37% of SriLankan Airlines’ flights in September 2018 were on time according to an analysis by Flightstats (www.flightstats.com). Airlines are categorised among four categories – ‘Global Airlines’, ‘Major Airlines’, ‘Regional Airlines’ and ‘Low Cost Carriers’ – with some airlines appearing in more than one category. In the ‘Major Airlines’ category, SriLankan was easily ahead of India’s IndiGo that was in second place with 86.92% of flights being on time, and ANA which was third. SriLankan’s exceptional performance came on the heels of the airline having launched its dynamic new ‘Ready to Fly!’ program at the beginning of September 2018.
