The Senior Analyst at OAG John Grant visited Riga and awarded the Latvian airline airBaltic in three categories – the world’s most punctual airline, the most on time airline in Europe and the first in mainline category in 2017.

According to OAG, airBaltic achieved a punctuality rating of 90.01% for flights linking the Baltics to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, CIS and the Middle Least. It means that more than 90 out of 100 airBaltic flights arrived on time in 2017.

As informed previously, the Latvian airline airBaltic in 2017 transported a total of 3 523 300 passengers or 22% more than in 2016 to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East. It is the highest number of passengers carried in the history of airline. In addition, the regularity of airBaltic reached 99.43% in 2017, exceeding company’s internal target.
