Raffoul Arab, general manager of Tocumen airport said that punctuality is an attribute that is achieved thanks to the operational leadership of the airport in collaboration with airlines, regulatory authorities and all the actors in the logistics chain that supports the airport.

“We are committed to the continuous improvement of punctuality indicators and efficiency for the benefit of our passengers,” said Arab.

The ranking was made by Cirium, a company belonging to FlightStats, leader in the analysis of flight data in real time. The Cirium ranking is based on the analysis of more than 100,000 flights per day and statistical data from approximately 600 sources.
