"This award is a credit to the more than 12,000 Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air employees who continue to meet our core promise to customers of getting them to their destination safely and on time," said Ben Minicucci, Alaska Airlines' chief operating officer and executive vice president. "Winning this award for the third time is a credit to the caliber of our employees and their relentless focus on robust operational processes, all while keeping safety and customer service at the forefront of everything we do."

FlightStats' on-time rate for Alaska Airlines differs from the Department of Transportation number of 87.52 percent because it relies on more sources for information.
