Airports around the world upgrade their services by adding new terminals and enhancing facilities. But to improve the passenger experience, it is equally important that the airports have a good on-time performance. Airports in India have consistently been improving in all sectors and setting a benchmark in the aviation industry. Kempegowda International Airport was recently adjudged as the world’s most punctual airport by Cirium. The world-class hub has maintained its on-time performance for three consecutive months now and is ahead of major global airports. 

While Bangalore Airport had an impressive on-time performance of 87.51% in July, it improved to 89.66% in August and was 88.51% last month. Kempegowda International Airport is ahead of the Salt Lake City International Airport in US that had an on-time performance of 87.04%.

It had an on-time performance of 86.48%.

While Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) ranked 4th with an on-time performance of 85.89%, the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) grabbed the 7th spot with 85.10%.
