Qantas has ended Virgin Australia’s run as the nation’s most punctual airline.

Figures from the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) showed 87.9 per cent of all Qantas domestic flights departed on time in April, while 86 per cent of its services arrived at the gate on time.

The Flying Kangaroos came in ahead of Virgin, which had 86.9 per cent of flights depart on time and 84.8 per cent arrive on time.

Virgin had been on top since October 2014.

BITRE defines a flight as on time if it arrives or departs within 15 minutes of schedule.

The BITRE report also reported figures for the Qantas network (comprising Qantas and its regional wing QantasLink) and the combined performance of Virgin and Virgin Australia Regional.

On that score, it was the Virgin network that out on top, achieving an 86.5 per cent for departures and 84.6 per cent for arrivals.

The Qantas network had 84.7 per cent of flights depart on time, while 82.6 per cent of flights arrived at the gate within 15 minutes of schedule.

In the battle of the low-cost carriers, Tigerair Australia edged out Jetstar for both on-time arrivals and departures in April.

    That’s more like it. Personally the majority of my flights with Virgin are always late. That’s why when I’m booking and paying I fly Qantas.

    says:

    Virgin can not match the QANTAS as brand; because Qantas belong to every Ausi heart/soul; Qantas must comeback and make it just one more time to say the world that we are the ‘No.1’ in Australia. Virgin recruitment is basically flawed; it never quite got the people behind it to face the challenge. Saying and doing are something very different.
