Monday, 20 April 2015: Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, and Fiji Link, its regional and domestic subsidiary, today reported their March 2015 on-time performance (OTP).
Fiji Airways reported an OTP of 84.90% in March, compared to 88.61% in February, and 75.92% in January. Fiji Link recorded an OTP of 94.0% in March, compared to 91.90% in February and 86.90% in January.
Fiji Airways Board Director Stefan Pichler stated: “It’s good to produce a consistent result, and ensure that we’re meeting our monthly objective of an above 80% OTP. The results for Fiji Airways in March were impacted by issues related to minor mechanical issues, slow boarding and loading of cargo. We obviously want to keep this consistency for April and the months to come.
The on-time performance for both airlines is available on the Fiji Airways website: http://www.fijiairways.com/about-fiji-airways/on-time-performance/. OTP is a global airline industry benchmark which measures aircraft flight departures as being on time if they depart from the gate within 15 minutes of the airline’s scheduled departure time.
