Iberia and Iberia Express reaffirmed their leadership as the most punctual airlines in Europe during July and August, the busiest months of the year. In addition, both airlines were among the most punctual in the world in August: Iberia ranked third among global airlines and Iberia Express second among low-cost airlines, according to a report by Cirium, a consulting firm specializing in aviation analysis.

In August, almost 86% of the flights operated by Iberia, out of a total of more than 15,000, arrived at their destination on time. This percentage is even better than the result obtained in July, when the airline was the most punctual in Europe and the seventh most punctual in the world.

“We have once again demonstrated that we are consistent with our operation, and that, with everyone’s drive, we can be the most punctual airline in Europe and the third most punctual in the world, even in the most complicated months of the year in terms of volume of operations and passengers,” said Iberia’s Production Director, Rafa Hoyos.
