On-Time Performance

We know that getting away on time is one of the most important parts of your experience. It is for us too.

We're continually working hard to make sure our on-time performance is class leading. That's why our main focus is our commitment to your safety and making you the number one reason we fly.

We're incredibly proud of everyone in our team, from our cabin crew to our engineers, our ground staff to our baggage handlers. As a team we're continually trying harder to find new ways to improve your Qantas experience, from the moment you book to the moment you step off the plane in your destination.

Qantas uses the computerised Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), to record on-time performance data.

In accordance with industry standards, an 'on-time' departure is one that departs the gate within 15 minutes of the scheduled departure time. Our on-time performance statistics are published by the Australian Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics.
