HÀ NỘI — Last month, Bamboo Airways operated a total of 1,319 flights, of which the number of on-time flights was 1,225, or 92.9 per cent. With this figure, Bamboo Airways maintains its top spot in terms of punctuality in Việt Nam which was previously established in the first quarter of the year.

According to the latest statistics by the Civil Aviation Authority of Việt Nam (CAAV), from March 19 to April 18, coming in second place is Vasco, operating 1,198 flights with 1,145 on-time flights, accounting for 90.6 per cent.

Jetstar Pacific had the highest rate of flight delays and cancellations, reaching 20.8 per cent.

Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet Air airlines rank third and fourth with the on-time performance (OTP) of 85.3 per cent and 82.5 per cent, respectively.

In total, five airlines operated 26,553 flights, including 22,321 flights on time, accounting for 84.1 per cent. The rate of delayed and cancelled flights accounted for 15.9 per cent, equivalent to 4,232 flights.

According to the CAAV, the most common reason for OTP drop was the late arrival of aircraft, accounting for 63.4 per cent; followed by internal factors from the airlines themselves, accounting for 23.1 per cent.

Previously, in response to the press, Đặng Tất Thắng, Bamboo Airways Standing Vice President, said that one of the most important factors that helped maintain this airline’s high OTP was “good management and precise planning”. At Bamboo Airways, people, processes, functions, and technologies work together with a high degree of integration at all time, he said. — VNS
