NEW DELHI: The IGI airport in Delhi, the 16th busiest in the world, ranked poorly in flight punctuality, securing the 451st position among the 513 airports worldwide, according to a study conducted by OAG, a global leader in providing flight information.
The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, the second busiest in the country, fared much worse in flight punctuality as it was ranked fifth least punctual airport in the world, just ahead of airports such as Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Indonesia and Islamabad airport in Pakistan, the study said.
None of the major Indian airports figured among the top 200 in ‘on-time performance’ (OTP), but the small Port Blair airport in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands got the worldwide rank of 65, thanks to its punctuality rate of 84.6 per cent, it said.
The ‘on-time performance’ for Delhi stood at 70.7 per cent in comparison to Nagoya Komaki Airport in Japan which topped the global ranking list with an OTP rate of 94.5 per cent. The OTP for Mumbai was 60 per cent.
The Hyderabad airport was ranked 246, Bengaluru airport 262 and Kolkata 270, the study said. (AGENCIES)
