Air Malta was awarded the Punctuality Award 2015 for Short Haul Airlines at the 9th edition of the Brussels Airport Aviation Awards. The Maltese airline has distinguished itself by achieving a punctuality record of 91.7% during 2015.

Commenting on this success Silvio Falzon, Chief Operations Officer of Air Malta said, “We are really excited about this award. We have worked hard to improve our On Time Performance (OTP) figures. Last year, over the whole network, we operated almost 15,000 flights of which 87.2% have departed within 15 minutes of their scheduled time of departure. This is an improvement of 0.7% over the same period the year before (2014: 86.5%).”

“Various OTP improvement projects have contributed and supported to drive these positive results. We are aiming to continuously improve processes and procedures to achieve improved results,” added Mr Falzon.

Air Malta operates nine weekly flights to Brussels Airport. The airports handles 23 million passengers every year.
