The Puerto Princesa airport has been awarded with On-Time Performance (OTP) Star Ratings by the Official Aviation Guide together with seven other airports in the country.

According to the Department of Transportation-Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, the OTP star rating is designed to benchmark against set criteria, defined by industry and flight status information experts. OTP is measured across the whole year based on 12 months’ rolling performance.

Aside from Puerto Princesa, other airports that also earned star ratings on OTP are Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Bacolod, Davao, Tacloban, Laguindingan (Cagadayan De Oro), and Kalibo.

“To achieve an OTP star rating, the world’s airlines and airports must meet two criteria: all airlines and airports must have a minimum of 600 operations a month (minimum of 2.5 million departed seats) and OAG must receive flight status information for no less than 80 percent of scheduled flights within a 12-month period,” the DOTr said.

The OAG is an air travel intelligence company based in United Kingdom, which also provides digital information and applications to the world’s airlines, airports, government agencies and travel-related service companies.

OAG is best known for its airline schedules database which holds future and historical flight details for more than 900 airlines and over 4,000 airports,” said the DOTr.
