Singapore airport struggles with on time departures
Only 55.9% of Singapore departure flights flew on time in March, a performance eclipsed by 25 other cities.
In its new Top 30 World Airports report, FlightStates named Tokyo as the best performing airlines with an impressive 94.02% on time flights or flights that departed less than 15 minutes on schedule. This is more than 40 percentage points higher than Singapore's.
Among Asian cities, Bangkok and Hong Kong also performed relatively better than Singapore in on time flights of 78.81% and 74.15%, respectively.
Singapore got dragged down by a whopping 27.94% late flights, or flights that ran within 15-29 minutes late. In contrast, the other higher-ranking Asian cities posted far fewer late flights: Tokyo (4.12%), Bangkok (12.38%), and Hong Kong (12.53%).
