Perth Airport’s Airline On Time Performance
figures for May 2009 show Perth Airport rated first in Australia
for capital city airport departures with 89.5% of all flights
departing on time, and first for capital city airport arrivals
with 88.8% of all flights arriving on time.
Perth Airport CEO, Brad Geatches said, “This is the first time this year that we have been rated number
one for both departures and arrivals which reflects the concerted
effort made by the airport and the airlines to improve on time
“Perth Airport’s April on time performance figures were also very strong and saw the airport rated second to
Adelaide for departures with 85.8% of all flights departing on
time and third to Adelaide and Brisbane for arrivals with 84.3%
of all flights arriving on time.
“Improving airport facilities
is also a priority, with works at the front of the international
and domestic terminals well underway. Qantas is also making
good progress with improvements to its domestic terminal. These
improvements will continue to contribute to a more streamlined
passenger experience and will sustain our on time performance
In accordance with industry standards, an
‘on time’ arrival or departure is one that arrives or departs
at the designated gate within 15 minutes of the scheduled
arrival/departure time as shown in the carriers’ schedule.
The statistics are compiled by the
Australian Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and
Regional Economics (BITRE).
