SVO operated the most on-schedule departing flights, with 95 percent being on time. Sheremetyevo Airport was number one in both the category for Global Airports, and the category for Large Airports.
Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (with 92.52% of flights in time) and Shanghai Pudong International Airport (with 91.04 percent of total flights in time) are second and third in this ranking.
Jeremy Bowen, Cirium CEO, said in a statement: “Airlines and airports which consistently operate on-time and go that extra mile for their customers deserve to be recognized in an increasingly competitive environment and should be justifiably proud of reaching such a world-class industry standard.”
Alexander Ponomarenko, Chairman of SVO, stated, “We are thrilled to be recognized for our on-time performance at Sheremetyevo. We are constantly seeking to improve traveler experience for those who travel through SVO as a gateway to Russia and the world. This recognition is a testament to those efforts.”
