Thirteen of these airlines are European. The rest are from other areas, five from Asia-Pacific and two are from the United States.
According to a report by the aviation tracking company called OAG, the winner of 2014 for overall on-time performance is the low cost carrier airBaltic, from Latvia. This carrier had an OTP of 94.90 percent for 2014. It is also a winner for all European carriers during the same year. For the month of October of the same year, the carrier had the best on-time performance for low cost airlines.
