Airlines of the JAL Group - Japan Airlines International (JAL) and J-AIR, have been identified as having the best on-time arrival performance respectively among global airlines and airlines in Asia, by Conducive Technology
Corporation - a data provider of reliable flight information to the transportation industry. Statistics tabulated by Conducive's FlightStats, 89.90% of the 180,343 scheduled international and domestic flights operated by
JALI in the calendar year 2010 arrived at their destinations as scheduled, rendering it the most punctual airline among 33 major global carriers evaluated for this award. Regionally, J-AIR emerged first among 9 contending
airlines in the category of most on-time carrier in Asia, a title held by another JAL Group airline JAL Express in 2009.
An awards ceremony will be held today at the headquarters of the JAL Group in Tokyo where its President Masaru Onishi will receive the "FlightStats 2010 On-Time Performance Service Awards" for both airlines from Mr. Jeffrey Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer of Conducive Technology Corporation.
"We could not have achieved this without the understanding and cooperation of valued passengers who arrive at their boarding gates promptly, and without the dedication and efforts of our employees," said Masaru Onishi. "We would like to thank them for ensuring the on-time departures and arrivals of our flights and thereby help us retain this title for a second year."
The JAL Group is firmly committed to providing customers with the safest standards in flight operations and high quality products and services. It also regards punctuality as a fundamental quality of an airline group and will
continue to endeavor to maintain on-time departures so as to be a reliable carrier of customers' choice.
