Worldwide Survey Identifies Grande Prairie Number One in Canada
A worldwide survey conducted by OAG Aviation Group Ltd comparing 125 airlines and 505 airports for on-time flight departures has identified the Grande Prairie Airport as number one in Canada and 108th in the world.
“Although most Canadian airlines and airports rank in the lower half of the worldwide survey this is a great testament to the professionalism and dedication of all parties at our local airport”, indicates Brian Grant, CEO.
“On-time departure statistics are important to airlines in monitoring their service levels and proficiencies. Airports can be a major contributor to the success of the airlines’ performance so it’s important that airports provide the best possible operational environment, especially in inclement weather” says Mr. Grant.
“The success of on-time departures is reliant upon many factors including finely tuned coordination of many people during operations. Employees of airlines, passenger screening, baggage handling, security and customer service, restaurant service, airfield operations, air terminal operations, and air traffic controllers all play a part in the on-time departure of a flight”, concludes Grant.
