It ranked seventh, with KLM topping the list.

Singapore Airlines emerges as one of the best international airlines for 2016, as ranked by aviation insights company FlightStats.

FlightStats puts together a list of airlines with the best on-time performance records. Singapore Airlines regained its seventh spot after failing to make it to the list last year. In 2014, Singapore ranked as 10th in the list.

"The FlightStats OPS Awards recognizes airlines around the world that deliver the highest percentage of flights to their arrival gates within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival time. To determine the finalists and winners, FlightStats examines flight status and arrival data aggregated from global sources including civil aviation authorities, airlines, airports, and major airline reservation systems," FlightStats said.

Topping the list is KLM, closely followed by Iberia. JAL came in third, with Qatar Airways trailing in fourth place. Austrian and ANA also made it to the list. Completing the top 10 are Delta Air Lines, TAM Linhas Aéreas, and Qantas
