Spanair obtains good punctuality results in January

22nd February 2008 Print
Spanair's average punctuality rate was 90% in January 2008 while several days the company reached rates of above 95%. The average punctuality rate was above both Spanish Madrid-Barajas and Barcelona-El Prat's airport average during this period.

These rates are a continuation of the company's improved punctuality results for the last quarter of 2007, and are evidence of its commitment to providing optimum service and the highest possible punctuality for its passengers.

The background to these top results is the company's Punctuality Guarantee project, which is unique in Spanish air transport and which has been running for 7 years now. This commitment was initially made on the 12th of February 2001 for the Madrid-Barcelona air-shuttle, and was steadily extended to cover all the airline's scheduled domestic flights.

In order to run the system it has been necessary to execute an ambitious internal logistics plan involving all Spanair staff (ground, air, sales among others) and ensure correct implementation and success of the operation.

"We are very satisfied with Spanair's high punctuality rates for the month of January. They show we are working in the right direction to ensure that we contribute to providing customers with top-quality air transport services." said Marcus Hedblom, Spanair's CEO.

"We thank all our customers for their contribution in achieving the optimal punctuality results which have always been an important characteristic for our company", he added.

Spanair was founded in 1986 and offers more than 600 daily flights operated with a fleet of 63 aircraft and in code share with its partners, to 241 destinations. Since April 2003, Spanair is a member of Star Alliance, the largest and most prestigious airline network in the world.
