LATAM Airlines was recognized as the most punctual airline in Brazil in the first quarter of 2022, with 91.4% of its flights on time, according to the punctuality ranking measured by Cirium, a company specialized in the analysis of global aviation data.

“This result is a recognition of the efficiency of a company that operates in the densest and most complex airports in Brazil. It also reaffirms the correctness of our decision to change, starting in 2018, all our processes to ensure flight punctuality and respect for what is most important in our lives: our time,” says Jerome Cadier, CEO of LATAM Brazil.

LATAM resumes routes from Río de Janeiro to Florianópolis and Foz do Iguaçu.

To arrive at the result of the OTP (On-time Performance) indicator, the consulting firm Cirium evaluates commercial flights worldwide that arrived at their destination within the scheduled time (up to 14 minutes after the scheduled time). According to the same ranking, LATAM Brazil was also the leader in March with 92.8% on-time performance for its flights.
