The British air transport intelligence company OAG has called Garuda Indonesia the most punctual airline.
The national flag carrier is recognized in the global airline category with more than 10,000 flights in April 2019.
According to a statement released by Garuda, the airline reached 95.5% on its track record (OTP).
It also says that Garuda retained its best performance since December 2018, and also secured the position of the only Asian airline holding the title for five consecutive months.
Garuda’s operations director, Bambang Adisurya Angkasa, said that maintaining the punctuality of the airline would be a challenge in anticipation of the peak of Idul Fitri (celebrating the end of the fast).
“We will continue to carry out our work in a timely manner, checking flight operations, especially on safety measures […], so we are confident that we will be able to pass the peak of the season safely, punctually and comfortably,” said Bambang.
