Almost 90 percent of flights arriving and departing from Warsaw’s Chopin Airport are on time, reveals the latest OAG Punctuality Report.
OAG, a global flight scheduling company, placed the Warsaw airport 18th in its “small airports” category with an 87.6 percent punctuality rate.
OAG’s “small airports” category is defined as “fewer than 10 million seats per annum,” despite Chopin Airport actually handling over 10.5 million passengers in 2014.
“This is a fantastic result and a great success for our services, but it is also the effect of better cooperation between airlines and baggage handlers,” underlined Radoslaw Purazel, deputy director of Chopin Airport.
“We are continuously working on procedural optimisation and better workload organisation,” he added.
In the “small airports” category, Bristol in the UK topped the ranking with a 94.4 percent punctuality rating, followed by Belgium’s Charleroi (93.1 percent), Berlin Schoenefeld (92.3 percent) and Norway’s Trondheim (92.0 percent).
In the “medium airports” category, where airports serve between 10-20 million passengers annually, Osaka topped the list with 93.2 percent. If Warsaw were placed in this ranking, it would come in 8th place.
Meanwhile, Germany’s Munich Airport topped the “large airports” ranking, with an 89-percent punctuality rate.
The OAG report compiles the punctuality ratings of some 1,000 airports worldwide.
