Gulf Air makes it to finals in on-time performance contest

January 17, 2012

Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, has been selected as a finalist in the third annual FlightStats On-time Performance Service Awards, the company said.

“Making it into the top five in this award is a true achievement and a testament to the sustained efforts of the entire Gulf Air team both in the air and on the ground to ensuring the best possible flight experience and operations excellence for our passengers,” Samer Majali, Gulf Air Chief Executive Officer, said.

“On-time performance is integral to our success and to ensuring a positive experience for all our passengers. Our average On Time Performance in 2011 was at 75 per cent, well above the industry standard, with our under 15 minute On Time Performance at 88 per cent,” he said.

FlightStats, the industry leader in flight information services, holds the OPS Awards in recognition of airlines that deliver the highest percentage of flights to their arrival gates within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival time.

FlightStats has been tracking on-time performance since 2004, tracking over 150,000 flights per day – nearly 80 per cent of all scheduled passenger flights globally.

The winners will be announced on January 23.
