PAL, Cebu Pacific on-time performance up


Bilyonaryo Lucio Tan’s Philippine Airlines (PAL) continued to step up its game and invest in punctuality as it saw its on-time performance (OTP) improve significantly.

Data released by the Department of Transportation showed that PAL posted an on-time arrival rate of 80% in June, up from below 60% in April.

For the month of July, the running average OTP for PAL is 82%.

Meanwhile, Tycoon John Gokongwei’s Cebu Pacific saw its OTP decline in May.
It has improved to 60% in June and 77% in July, with peak days reaching 80%.

OTP rating for airports is measured by the number of departures and arrivals that take place in less than 15 minutes after scheduled departure / arrival times, including cancellations.

“I thank PAL and Cebu Pacific for their efforts to improve OTP. It is my hope that this be increased, and that more and more airlines follow suit,” DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade said.

Airline officials said the daily publication of OTP, which commenced in mid-May as ordered by Tugade, has been helpful in pushing for improved performance and promoting the airlines’ accountability to the air-riding public.

Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) general manager Ed Monreal welcomed the upward trend of airline OTPs as a sign of effective collaboration and cooperation between the government and the private sector to improve aviation services for the Filipino people.
