Aviation: DGCA mulling new method to get on-time performance of domestic airlines
The OTP of an airline is currently measured only on the basis of the timings of the departing flights. However, the mechanism has in the past come under question from certain quarters. "We are now thinking of introducing OTP on arrivals also and it will help us in addressing the grey areas," said the official.
An airline's OTP as well as facilities and financial compensation to an air passenger in case of delay are determined on the basis of block hours. Image source: Reuters
