Airline Performance Metrics

The Significance of Flight On-time Performance Database for Aviation Industry

Aviation consultants who keep track of this data know the importance of measuring the airline performance accurately. In order to do that, you should have the access to the right data. One of the most important metrics used is flight on-time performance. On-time performance can be defined as the level of service success to remain on its schedule. It is expressed in percentages and the higher percentage represents higher success. Most of the airline companies use this data to show how efficient their service is.

There is a rule that accepted delay for the on-time arrival of flights is 15 minutes. This means that a flight that arrived within 15 minutes of the schedule is considered to be on time. Not all airline agencies are required to measure this but they do it to provide their customers with the information and prove their reliability. If you choose to use our database of the airlines on-time performance with API for the aviation industry, you will be able to extract all the necessary information for the accurate measurement.
