However, we have a solution for you! But before we provide you with the answers, we would like to clarify one thing. Punctuality is measured by On Time Performance (or OTP for short.). OTP is when the flight either arrives or departs within 15 minutes of the scheduled time. So, if a flight is delayed by 20 minutes, that flight’s OTP is negative.
