Indonesian airlines might not be known for their punctuality – but it’s worth knowing which ones are more likely to be on time than others.
A report was released last week by the Transportation Ministry’s Air Travel Directorate General on Indonesian airlines’ punctuality for 2017. The factors considered were On Time Performance (OTP) scores, which is the percentage of flights that departed/arrived on schedule.
In 2017, NAM Air (part of low-cost carrier Sriwijaya Air), took the top spot with an OTP of 92.62% from 29,832 flights. Sriwijaya came in second with an OTP of 88.69%, while Batik Air (part of Lion Air) came in a close third with 88.66%.
Indonesia’s national airline, Garuda Indonesia, lost its most punctual crown from the previous year as it only came in fourth this year with a score of 88.54%, followed by Citilink with 88.33%.
Of the 14 airlines included in the government’s ranking, Trigana Air came last with an OTP of 42.49%. Other notable airlines include Indonesia AirAsia X (77.42%), Indonesia AirAsia (75.94%) and Lion Air (71.32%).
