Virgin Australia tops on-time performance stats for December


Virgin Australia has taken the title of the nation’s most punctual
airline for a second straight month.
Virgin’s mainline operations led all the major carriers in December,
with 86.9 per cent of its flights pushing back from the gate within
15 minutes of their scheduled departure time.
The airline’s on-time arrival rate was also the highest among all
mainline carriers at 84.3 per cent.
The Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics
 (BITRE) figures showed Qantas mainline was next best, with 84.5
per cent of departures and 83.1 per cent arrivals on-time.
December was a bad month for the low cost carrier Jetstar, level of
on-time departures dropping 9.1 percentage points in the month to
74.2 per cent in December, compared with 83.3 per cent in November.
Jetstar’s arrival performance also took a tumble, sliding to 75
per cent in December, from 83.1 per cent in November.
In other words one in four Jetstar flights reached the gate more
than 15 minutes late in December.
The result left Jetstar fourth among all mainline carriers for on-time
 performance, behind third-placed Tigerair, which had an 81.8 per cent
on-time departure rate and 79.5 per cent on-time arrival rate.
