Delta Air Lines Named 2017’s Most On-Time Global Airline


Delta Air Lines was named the World’s Most On-Time Airline among mainline carriers by the aviation data and analytics company FlightGlobal, incorporating FlightStats.

The airline is the first U.S. airline to earn the industry-leading distinction in the nine years FlightGlobal’s FlightStats has presented its On-time Performance Service (OPS) Awards.

In 2017, Delta’s mainline operation saw 85.94 percent of flights arrive within 14 minutes of the scheduled arrival time which is the industry’s widely used definition of on-time.

Delta was also recognized as North America’s most on-time major carrier—a title that takes into account the Delta Connection regional operation.

According to FlightStats analysis of flight status and arrival data pulled from over 600 global sources and data feeds, Delta and its regional partners saw 84.06% of flights arrive on time in 2017.

Delta recorded several company bests, including a record 242 days in 2017 without a mainline flight cancellation and 90 days in which mainline and Delta Connection were cancel-free.

Together with Delta Connection, its regional airline brand, Delta flies more than 180 million customers annually on approximately 5,000 daily flights.

FlightGlobal, incorporating FlightStats and Diio, helps aviation and travel-related businesses drive growth and efficiency, assess risk and improve customer satisfaction.

The company has a unique combination of databases, technology and expertize which power data solutions, APIs, online tools, industry insight and expert advice.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
