Osaka International airport awarded again for its punctuality

February 22, 2023

VINCI Airports is excited to announce that Osaka International Airport was ranked world No.1 in the OAG Punctuality League 2023, a survey of global rankings of on-time performance of the world’s airlines and airports, released by OAG Aviation Worldwide Limited (“OAG”). This recognition follows the CIRIUM ranking published earlier this year, which also placed Osaka Airport in the top position ('large airports' category).

VINCI Airports' commitment, to improving the operational efficiency of the airports it operates and providing the best possible passenger experience, has once again been recognized internationally. Osaka International airport in Japan has maintained the best on-time performance according to the OAG ranking. This recognition is the result of a collective effort involving several players such as airlines, ground operations support companies, the air traffic control agency and the VINCI Airports and Kansai Airports teams that operate the airport in the Kansai region.


Rank Airport Name Country/region Average on-time performance
1 Osaka International Airport Japan 91.45%
2 Matsuyama Airport Japan 91.44%
3 Miyazaki Airport Japan 91.34%

The airport category includes on-time performance rankings, such as World Top 20 Airports, Top 20 Mega Airports, and Top 10 Airports by Region.
The on-time performance rankings for airlines and airports in OAG Punctuality League 2023 are based on the analysis of flight data for one year from 2022 (January 1 to December 31, 2022).
