Two Thai airlines among Top 10 most timely in the world

Thailand is not known for its timekeeping, yet two Thai airlines were among the most “on time” in the world in September 2022.

The Top 10 Most On-time Airlines were ranked using real data from the Official Airline Guide (OAG) flight database. OAG provides “the world’s most accurate and information-rich flight data.”

Flights that leave within 15 minutes of their scheduled time are considered on time. Cancellations are included and taken as not on time. Departing 15 minutes or later than scheduled is considered not on time.

If you’re sick of flight delays, consider flying with Bangkok Airways or Thai AirAsia for a punctual aviation experience.
