Praise for Malawian Airlines

Malawian Airlines has been hailed for their on-time departures! The airline has been recognised for always departing on time at OR Tambo International Airport in 2017. Airports Company South Africa says the excellent performance contributed to the airport’s operational efficiency. Malawian Airlines’ departure on-time performance at OR Tambo in 2017 averaged 92.33% surpassing the airport’s target of 87%.  Expressing his gratitude, Malawian Airlines Chief Executive Officer Hailemelekot Mamo described it as great news saying the Airline strives to deliver excellent service to its customers and that the recognition by Airports Company South Africa is a vote of confidence for the company.


Airport operational efficiency is measured through different measures, with on-time performance being the primary internationally accepted standard. On-time performance is measured by comparing the actual off-block time (when aircraft pushes back) against the airline schedule time for a departing flight. The measurement is done in accordance with the International Airlines Transport Association (IATA) universal standard benchmark which considers a 15 minute deviation from the scheduled time as an on-time departure.
