Top spots for punctuality!

In May more than 88 per cent of Iberia flights arrived on time

In May Iberia and Iberia Express once again took the top spot on the punctuality podium.

According to the US consultancy FlightStats, Iberia was the most punctual airline in Europe while Iberia Express was the most punctual low-cost airline in the world.

 

Europe's most punctual airline

Last month Iberia operated 15,105 flights and obtained an on-time performance score of 88 per cent, making it the most punctual airline in Europe.

So far this year, we're claiming the top spots in punctuality, with leading the world ranking in January and coming in second on the world and European rankings in February.

We were the world's most punctual airline in 2016 and 2017, and in 2018 we were nominated the third most puntual airline in Europe. These achievements would not have been possible without the dedication of our employees, which is clear proof of the major transformation which the company has undergone in recent years.

 

Iberia Express, the world's most punctual low-cost airline

Meanwhile, in May Iberia Express was the most punctual low-cost airline in the world, with 3,150 operations and an on-time performance score of 92.29%.

This is the second time this year that Iberia Express has claimed the top low-cost spot. The first time was in January and it did again in May.

In the last five years (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) Iberia Express has maintained its position as the world's most punctual low-cost airline, an extraordinary achievement that reflects the enormous efficiency that has characterised this airline from the outset and has now become a hallmark of the company.
