The FlightStats On-time Performance Service (OPS) Awards have recognized airlines and airports around the world that deliver the highest percentage of flights to their arrival gates within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival time. Each year FlightStats makes changes to the awards program to recognize operational excellence in air travel around the globe. This year the awards are focusing on airlines exclusively and we are highlighting more regions, networks, and alliances across the world. To determine the finalists and winners, FlightStats examines flight status and arrival data aggregated from global sources including civil aviation authorities, airlines, airports, and major airline reservation systems.
