SAS named Europe's most punctual airline

Scandinavian Airlines has been named Europe's most punctual airline by Flightstats (http://www.flightstats.com/go/Home/home.do). FlightStats On-time Performance Service (OPS) Awards recognize 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.

To determine the finalists and winners, the company examines flight status and arrival data aggregated from global sources including civil aviation authorities, airlines, airports, and major airline reservation systems.

Said John Dueholm, acting CEO of SAS, “All our staff, from the check-in and gate to the baggage handlers, work exceptionally hard every day to provide our customers with that unique service that characterizes SAS.” Dueholm also highlighted the airline's innovative check-in solutions as one of the reasons for it's success in offering time-efficient air travel.

SAS was also nominated as the world's most punctual airline and was the only airline outside the AsiaPacific region included in the global category.
