This summer, we surveyed 2,300 mobile travelers who told us what changes or additional services they want – and would even pay a premium for – to improve their travel experience.
A regional operator in North America wants to be sure its operations meet or exceed the best operational performance in the region. They turned to FlightView to provide them with timely historical information for each of the regional airlines they compete with – as well as the major airlines they fly for – so they could see how they measured up against the competition.
Every month FlightView reports on the on-time performance of airlines around the world based on the real-time flight information we collect. As well, the US Department of Transportation issues on-time performance of the major US airlines every month.
When we compare FlightView’s and USDOT’s views of airline performance, what do we see? Do our numbers match up? Are there any biases? Are the same airlines on top / bottom of our lists? Is one report better than the other?
When you're responsible for maintaining over 80% of the aircraft engines in the Business & General Aviation markets, you need to keep a close watch on your customers' engine usage and servicing schedule.

A number of airports and airlines have asked us to report on the on-time performance of their organizations based on the global coverage of our flight tracking services. Increasingly they depend on FlightView to supply the most accurate, fastest information about the flights they are operating or servicing, both in real time and collected as historical flight information.
As a result of delivering historic and real-time flight information to our customers, we have discovered high interest within the ATI community for information of this kind to help understand where opportunities lie to improve their operational and marketing capabilities.
Starting this January, each month we will report the on-time performance of the world’s largest airlines and airports (by number of flights).
The first Global Airline On-Time Performance Report is available for download now.
In addition to on-time performance this month we included the completion percentage of those airlines. More than 130 global airlines are ranked by both on-time arrivals and completion percentages.
