We’re On Time
30 Jan 2018
Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has been named one of the most punctual airports in the world by the OAG Punctuality League, which ranks on-time performance of the world's largest airlines and airports.
MSP came in first for the percentage of flights that stuck to schedule in the "Major Airports" category. Nearly 86 percent of flights operating at MSP arrive or depart on schedule, and that makes it one of the most punctual airports in the world.
The numbers from the 2018 punctuality report, which draws on flight records from last year, were slightly improved from the 84 percent in OAG's 2017 report.
MSP also garnered these two recent infrastructure rankings:
- Top North American Airport – 25-40 million passengers per year category (Air Transportation Research Society, 2017)
- Best Airport in North America – 25-40 million passengers per year category (Airports Council International, 2016)
With Smart Glasses, Getting Around MSP is Easier, Too
Working with the Travelers with Disabilities Task Force, MSP has created a number of accessibility services at MSP. Accessibility services are highlighted on online maps for each terminal. The Airport Information and Paging Office, and Travelers Assistance volunteers are available to assist and answer questions. The Navigating MSP Program helps ease the anxiety for parents with special-needs children to experience ‘practice runs’ through the airport.
