Lufthansa lifts punctuality to 85 per cent
In 2013, Lufthansa recorded the best figures for punctuality in the Company’s history. More than 85 per cent of all departing flights left the hubs in Frankfurt and Munich within 15 minutes of the scheduled departure time.
The reliability of transfer connections and baggage services also improved further. The proportion of transfer passengers who missed their connecting flight or who did not receive their luggage as planned at their destination was barely more than one per cent.
This performance was achieved despite the construction work on the apron for the satellite building at Munich Airport – one of Europe’s biggest construction sites – and the very strict night-flight ban in Frankfurt. Operations at the north-west runway in Frankfurt, which was opened in 2011, continue to have a positive impact.
