Fiji Airways Group Reports Consistent On-Time Performances for October 2014

Wednesday, 5 November 2014: : Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, and Fiji Link, its regional and domestic subsidiary, today reported their October 2014 on-time performance (OTP) results.

Fiji Airways has maintained above industry standards targets, reporting an on-time performance of 86.49%. Its OTP was 89.95% in September and 84.7% in August.

Fiji Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Stefan Pichler was pleased at the performance, adding the airline will continue its focus of maintaining OTP above 80%.

“This is a good result. In October we had some minor mechanical issues with a couple of our B737 aircraft along with a handful of operational-related factors which contributed to some disruptions. We’re tracking at an average of 83.05% for the ten months of 2014, and we’re pleased with that.”

Fiji Link continued their above 90% performance this year, with a 91.66% OTP, compared to 94.52% in September, and 96.1% in August. Key factors affecting Fiji Link’s October performances were weather conditions primarily in Nausori and Labasa, and two unscheduled maintenance on its aircraft.

The on-time performance for both airlines is available on the Fiji Airways website: http://www.fijiairways.com/about-fiji-airways/on-time-performance/. OTP is a global airline industry benchmark which measures aircraft flight departures as being on time if they depart from the gate within 15 minutes of the airline’s scheduled departure time.
