Jan 14,2019 - Last updated at Jan 14,2019

Royal Jordanian (RJ) ranked fourth in terms of punctuality among Middle Eastern airlines last year, with a 77.13 per cent on-time performance rate, according to OAG's Punctuality League study, released last week.

The Punctuality League report took into consideration 58 million flight records using full-year data from 2018 to rank the best on-time performance of the world’s largest airlines and airports. RJ came in after Saudi Arabian Airlines (81.12 per cent), which ranked third in this category; Qatar Airways obtained the 1st place (85.17 per cent) and Emirates came in second (81.44 per cent).

The airlines that qualified for inclusion in the Punctuality League have flight status data for at least 80 per cent of all scheduled flights operated. In remarks, RJ’s President/CEO Stefan Pichler said: “This is not the first time that we achieve a high score in an important factor 'the on-time performance'. I wish to thank our operations team for their outstanding performance.”
