On Time Airlines:The Most Punctual Airlines in Africa

Which are Africa's Most Punctual Airlines?
If you have idled at the various African Airports,then you have a pretty good idea of what we are talking about:Punctuality or to use airlinespeak,On-Time Performance(OTP).Airlines have had a notoriety for being late but some airlines do take passengers across the vast continent on time.


Ground crew across the continent wake up every morning fired up and determined to get passengers moving on time."Team,2 delays expected.Let's make it 70% today" is a common rallying cry across airports but the record is still dismal for Africa!

There are a thousand reasons why flights delay from those beyond our control like weather to those within our control;(read When a Flight Delay or Cancellation is caused by an airline).
When faced with infuriating delays, many passengers prefer to blame incompetent management, lazy ground crews or pilots who step out for smoking breaks. The more likely culprits are outdated software, increased security, understaffed carriers and replacement crew delays that contribute to the nightmare of commercial flying.
