Etihad Airways 'most punctual Middle Eastern airline' this year


Etihad Airways has been picked as the most punctual Middle Eastern airline in the first seven months of this year.

New figures produced by the aviation data company OAG show that Etihad was the only carrier in the region whose punctuality averaged more than 80 per cent for flights from January to July.

The airline ranked 24th globally for on-time performance in July, the peak summer month for air travel in the Middle East.

"Etihad Airways is a high-quality airline, and reliability is a key element of the total product we offer," said John Wright, Etihad Airways’ Vice President Global Airports and Network Operations, said.

"We continually strive to deliver excellence for our guests, in the air and on the ground."
