Hyderabad: GMR Hyderabad International Airport (GHIA), operated by GMR Airports Limited has achieved a global feat by recording the most punctual airport in the world.

In a recently released report by the aviation analytical firm Cirium, GMR Hyderabad International Airport recorded 90.43 percent On-Time Performance, for the month of March 2023.

Hyderabad airport is the only airport in the world to cross the 90 per cent mark, a release said on Thursday.

Cirium reviewed more than 5 million flights globally in the month of March 2023. GHIA topped the charts both in the ‘Global Airports’ and ‘Large Airports’ categories.

GHIA was also ranked 4th in the ‘Large Airports’ category with an OTP of 88.44 per cent, in November 2022. The airport was selected based on the actual gate departure service which has 80 per cent or better coverage of the actual departure time and must serve at least three regions (inclusive of its own).

Speaking on this achievement, GMR CEO Pradeep Panicker said, “ Over the years, we have implemented the latest technology innovations, improvised the best operational measures and built world- class infrastructure to optimize the airport’s performance.

In this journey of delivering excellence, I would like to thank our airline partners, other stakeholders and our team who work tirelessly to enhance our operational efficiency and enable travelers to have a smooth journey when they transit through the airport.

We continue to invest in people, technology and skill development to consistently deliver a world-class travel experience,” he added.
