Queenstown Airport airline Jetstar recorded its best New
Zealand domestic result for the year in September, when 89.7%
of domestic flights departed within 10 minutes of schedule.
August was a also high-performing month, when 89.4% of
flights left within 10 minutes of their scheduled departure
Jetstar New Zealand head Grant Kerr said September and August
were ''very positive months, but we've recorded good results
throughout the year''.
''For the nine months ended September, Jetstar's average
monthly 10-minute domestic on-time performance (OTP) was 83%,
a significant improvement compared with 74% for the same
period last year.''
Jetstar publishes its domestic OTP on its website each month,
against the internationally recognised aviation standard of
flights departing within 15 minutes of scheduled departure
''However, we also monitor our domestic OTP against the
10-minute benchmark of our local competitor and we've made
our 10-minute results public to provide increased
transparency for customers,'' Mr Kerr said.
