Airlines: Newcomers to the top

In the Asia-Pacific, ANA has taken top spot, with an on-time arrival of 98.14%, in the mainline airline category beating JAL, who came first last month. The carrier improved it’s on-time arrival by 3.5 points. ANA also maintained its position at the top of the airline network category. Can we anticipate the two carriers to be neck and neck this summer, leading up to the Olympics?

Air Canada moved up from 2nd place in May to 1st in the June mainline airline North America category with an on-time arrival of 87.76%, taking the top spot from Hawaiian Airlines. This is the first for Air Canada. Canadian-rival WestJet maintained its position as the most on-time airline network in the region.

Severe storms affected the region in late June 2021

As expected, airlines in North America were heavily impacted in June by a thunderstorm that swept across the east coast of America. Such extreme weather conditions are huge disruptors to airline and airport performance.
