RJ reaches three-star punctuality rating in global study

Posted 3 September 2019 · Add Comment

Royal Jordanian (RJ) has been ranked three stars, according to OAG’s On-Time Performance (OTP) Star Rating for the world's airlines and airports.

 

The OTP for this ranking was measured in the June 2018-May 2019 period, with RJ’s annual punctuality rate reaching 74.7%. 

The On-Time Performance Star Rating is an ongoing accreditation program which awards all airlines and airports a star rating once a year.

The star ratings range from one to five stars; the top 10% receive five stars. The awards are then distributed across all airlines and airports, with the poorest performers receiving one star.

For the star ranking, OAG considers the number of flights of each airline, processing flight status information for no less than 80% of scheduled flights in a 12-month period. Airlines must have a minimum of 1,500 operations per month; RJ's performance was measured based on 34,272 flights.

RJ President/CEO Stefan Pichler said: “RJ has been lately receiving very good rankings from a leading provider of digital flight data: OAG. I wish to thank our operations team for their continuous hard work to maintain flights punctual. We will keep our commitment to our passengers and strive to ensure that they have safe and on-time flights while enjoying great ground and air services.”
