SAS Continues its World-Class Punctuality

According to independent source FlightStats, 87.91% of all SAS flights landed on time in 2012. This puts SAS in second place in the 'Major European Airlines' category and in third place in 'Major International Airlines.' StarAlliance was also in second place in the new 'AirlineAlliance' category.

"Although SAS did not finish in first place this year, we have still achieved a  fantastic result and I am proud of all our staff, who work hard every day to make sure we provide our customers with good punctuality. Hard work month after month, commitment and focus make us one of the world's most punctual airlines, which is something we are very pleased about," said Flemming Jensen, Vice President Operations at SAS, who also congratulated the winners of each category.

Japan Airlines took first place among 'Major International Airlines' and LOT was the most punctual in the 'Major European Airlines' category. Aegean Airlines had the best punctuality among smaller regional airlines in Europe.

"The FlightStats results clearly show that we offer our customers world-class punctuality and we have now set our sights on achieving first place in 2013," said Jensen.
