Air Arabia ranked first for punctuality at Moscow airport

Airline recorded 100 per cent on-time performance for outbound flights from Domodedovo Airport in April 2012

Sharjah, UAE; May 30, 2012: Air Arabia, the first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Middle East and North Africa, announced today that it has been ranked first for the punctuality of its outbound flights from Domodedovo International Airport, Moscow.

Figures released by the airport show that 100 per cent of Air Arabia flights in April 2012 departed on-time, earning it the accolade of “Most Punctual Airline” at Domodedovo International Airport. The competition included all international airlines.

Air Arabia launched services to Moscow in October 2011 and currently operates three weekly non-stop flights from its Sharjah hub.  

“We thank Domodedovo Airport for recognizing Air Arabia’s solid on-time performance record. Punctuality has been a core focus since Air Arabia started its operations and it only highlights the airline’s operational excellence” said Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia. “We will continue to implement measures that ensure our impressive on-time performance remains the industry benchmark.” 

Air Arabia has an impressive track record of on-time performance. In 2011, 93 per cent of its out-bound flights from Sharjah International Airport took off on-time. The low-cost carrier attributes the record punctuality to a range of measures, which have enabled the airline to efficiently maintain its punctuality figures.
