«Regular punctuality ratings are an effective instrument of quality assessment and interaction between carrier, handling service and airport. They are very important in operating of long-haul flights, in particular to/from Beijing, to provide on time and convenient connections to the other points of UIA’s branched route network and keep schedule in such way, which allows providing the aircraft turn for both directions within twenty four hours, – noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Сommunications Director. – Besides, it is worth to mark a fact that there is a necessity to fly around the closed air space over the territory of Russia Federation, which makes this route longer and takes more time for operation the flight. As a result, it makes unfavorable competitive conditions for UIA in comparison with airlines, which have the opportunities to operate the flights from Beijing to the West by straighter and shorter route.
