The Minister of State for Civil Aviation Shri K.C. Venugopal informed Rajya Sabha today that Air India and Air India Express have achieved schedule integrity of 99.58 per cent and 99.18 per cent respectively. In addition, Air India and Air India Express have also achieved On Time Performance (OTP) of more than 76.10 per cent and 91 per cent respectively during the Winter Schedule. This was a result of several steps being taken such as close monitoring, optimization of schedules, frequent feedback, making contingency arrangements etc. which were initiated during the winter Schedule These came into effect from 28th October, 2012.
The Minister also informed the Rajya Sabha that no flights of Air India and Air India Express from Kerala to Middle East were cancelled during the year 2013 upto 10th March 2013. However there have been some instances of delays due to various reasons. In case of delays or cancellations passengers are informed in advance and those passengers reaching the airport are attended as per the prescribed norms.
75% OTP during winter (fog season) and less than 0.5% cancellation is indeed a good sign for AI's continued operational restructuring.
