In September, Iberia operated 13,224 flights. Compared to August, Spain's flag carrier reduced its flight volume by more than 7%. On top of that, Iberia remains only Spain's second-largest carrier since Vueling operated roughly 2,000 more flights.


On-Time Performance

As always, Iberia achieved an extraordinary on-time performance in September too: Almost 93% of its flights arrived on time at their destinations. Although the results reflect one of Europe's best punctuality levels, Iberia performed weaker than in August (-3pp) and below its annual average..


Schedule Reliability

In September, Iberia once again proved that it is not only one of Europe's most punctual airlines but also one the most reliable. Out of more than 13,000 flights, the Spanish carrier had to cancel only 45. As a result, Iberia achieved schedule reliability of 99.7%.


Flight Volume — 6 Months History

For many months, Iberia has been growing its flight volume. However, September marked the first month when Iberia slightly reduced its volume. Compared to the previous months, the airline operated 1,000 flights less. The end of the summer and holiday season can be identified as the main reason for the development. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how October develops.

Punctuality counts all flights that arrive on time at their destination airport and puts them into relation to the overall operated number of flights. On-time in this context is defined as +15/-15 compared to the scheduled arrival time. We consider an on-time performance above 90% as good (green), from 80%-90% as ok (orange), and below 80% as weak (red).
Flight Schedule Reliability (Reliability): Schedule reliability counts the number of actually performed flights concerning scheduled flights. In other words, the percentage of flights that an airline didn’t cancel. We consider schedule reliability above 95% as good (green), from 90%-95% as ok (orange), and below 90% as weak (red).
