Bamboo Airways led Vietnamese airlines in on-time performance (OTP) in August with an average rate of 95.6 per cent, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of Viet Nam (CAAV).

The CAAV reported that between July 19 and August 18, Bamboo Airways operated 2,040 flights, of which 1,950 took off and landed on time. The airlines’ OTP was higher than the sector’s average in the month of 89.6 per cent.

Bamboo Airways has led the industry in OTP since May and in July, it recorded an OTP rate of 95.4 per cent.

Vietnam Airlines came second with an average OTP rate of 90.5 per cent, followed by Pacific Airlines (formerly Jetstar Pacific) and Vietjet at 88.8 per cent and 86.3 per cent, respectively.

The agency pointed to six major reasons behind the delay and cancellation of flights, including equipment and services at airports, aviation management, weather conditions, airlines’ operations, and late return of aircraft.

Experts said due to the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic and the repairing of Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat International Airports, the high OTP of airlines showed they had made considerable efforts.

A representative from Bamboo Airways said the carrier has strictly followed pandemic preventive measures in accordance with standards of the Ministry of Health and the CAAV. — VNS
