Adria CRJ100/200s win Bombardier reliability award
Figures from Bombardier Aerospace reveal that Slovenia's Adria Airways has logged the highest dispatch reliability rates for CRJ100/200 aircraft series, winning the airline Bombardier's Annual Airline Reliability Performance Award for 2008.
The winners were selected on the basis of statistical data kept by the aircraft manufacturer for the entire fleet of CRJs operating around the world. The analysis takes into account delays and cancellations of flights for technical reasons. The awards recognise operators who log dispatch reliability rates of 99% or better.
This is the second time that the Adria has won the award for the highest dispatch reliability rate in the CRJ category. "This is major recognition for Adria Airways, since it demonstrates the high quality of our fleet maintenance while also increasing confidence in our CRJ maintenance services, since this is the second year in a row that Bombardier Aerospace has classed us among the safest airlines in the world," said Tadej Tufek, chairman of the Adria Airways management board.
