Posted 21 April 2017 · Add Comment

South Africa's Safair is one of three airlines to have achieved the prestigious 5-star status for punctuality as part of a new OAG on-time performance accreditation programme. The other two 5 star performers were Kuwait's Jazeera Airlines and AirBaltic.

 The new programme recognises and celebrates on-time performance excellence for airports and airlines, regardless of size of geography using an industry led benchmark devised by OAG, the flight information experts. The 5-star ranking goes to those who have achieved an on-time performance of 90% and above.

OAG says the ranking, awarded twice a year in April and October and based on 12 months of rolling data, is the ultimate, inclusive, globally recognised accreditation for any airline or airport.

OAG says the programme will give passengers confidence in brands, recognise team efforts and give the industry consistent on-time performance KPIs.
