And we all know punctuality is a virtue

Etihad Airways has been given the status of the most punctual airline in the Middle East, based on statistics from the first half of 2019.

Everything in UAE only goes towards good, better, and best. Abu Dhabi’s airline is no different.

Figures by aviation data company, OAG, show that the only Middle East airline that was punctual on an average of 80% of flights was Etihad.

On a global level, the data from OAG also ranks Etihad as the 24th most on-time performance in the month of July, the peak summer month of travel in this region.

The Vice President Global Airports and Network Operations of Etihad Airways, John Wright, said, “Etihad Airways is a high-quality airline, and reliability is a key element of the total product we offer. We continually strive to deliver excellence for our guests, in the air and on the ground."

Four Middle Eastern carriers featured in OAG's list of the top 50 most punctual airlines this year.
