Both KLM and Japan Airlines won Punctuality Awards (awarded by Schiphol) for being the most punctual airlines in 2008:


Marjan Rintel, who heads up hub operations at Schiphol, proudly accepted the Punctuality Award last Thursday on behalf of all operations managers at KLM. Schiphol selected KLM and Japan Airlines as the most punctual airlines in 2008. Each year, Schiphol hands out awards to its customers and business partners for contributing exceptionally towards passenger or cargo operations.

Marjan Rintel looks back with satisfaction: “I am really proud that KLM succeeded in winning this prize. It represents a real achievement thanks to the excellent level of cooperation within Operations. The Operations Management Team would therefore like to thank everyone who contributed.”

A total of seven awards were dished out. One of the two Punctuality Awards went to KLM for operating 80.8% of its flights on time within Europe. Japan Airlines, which last year operated 87.7% of its intercontinental flights on time won the other award. The Environmental Capacity Award went to Martinair Cargo, because it replaced its B747-200 cargo fleet for newer, less noisy B747-400 equipment. As a result both carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen dioxide (NOx) emissions have been significantly reduced.

The other awards included the Cargo Award, Passenger Airline Award, Ground Handling Award and Jan Dellaert Award. The latter was handed over to Ankie Prokos who worked tirelessly over the past forty years on passenger handling at Schiphol. She worked first for KLM and then, after several years, joined Martinair. She last held the position there of VP Ground Operations. For the first time, the award this year went to a person instead of an organisation.


Congrats to both KLM and JAL, a truly great accomplishment I would say!
