Punctuality on the cards for Etihad Airways


Etihad Airways posted its best operational on-time performance (OTP) results since 2009.

In 2017, the airline recorded network punctuality of 82% for flight departures and 86% for arrivals – results that place the airline as one of the most reliable airlines in the world for 2017. OTP for departures at the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub was 79%, and 89% for arrivals.

Overall, Etihad Airways, which has experienced considerable growth in the last decade, improved its network departure punctuality in 2017 by three percentage points over the previous year.

Richard Hill, Chief Operations Officer, Etihad Airways, said: “The number of passengers carried annually increased from the previous year, with more than 18.6 million air travellers flying with Etihad Airways in 2017.”
