Performance and Punctuality Awards
The Performance and Punctuality Awards reward passenger and cargo airlines that are punctual and perform well. Punctuality is the best on-time performance, that is with an arrival or departure within 15 minutes of the scheduled time.
The performance for cargo is calculated using the number of weekly flights, the number of destinations, the total quantity of cargo flown, the cargo per flight and the growth in cargo tonnage.
