According to the latest statistics of the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, from March 19 to April 18, 2019, Bamboo Airways made a total of 1,319 flights, of which the number of on-time flights was 1,225, making up the proportion of 92.9 per cent.
With this number, Bamboo Airways consolidates its top spot in term of punctuality in Vietnam which was previously established in the first quarter. Coming in second place is Vasco, operating 1,198 flights with 1,145 on-time, accounting for 90.6 per cent.
On the other hand, Jetstar Pacific had the highest rate of flight delays and cancellations, reaching 20.8 per cent.
Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet ranked third and fourth with the OTP of 85.3 and 82.5 per cent, respectively.
In total, the five airlines made 26,553 flights, including 22,321 flights on time, accounting for 84.1 per cent. Thus, the rate of delayed, canceled flights accounted for 15.9 per cent, equivalent to 4,232 flights.
According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, the most popular 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, Dang Tat Thang, standing vice president of Bamboo Airways, 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.
