Qantas is celebrating after being named Australia's most on-time major domestic airline in 2013. 

Statistics released by the Federal Government's Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics reveal that Qantas were top every single month in both on-time arrivals and departures last year. 

It is the fifth time Qantas has achieved top spot overall, but the first occasion any airline has scored a perfect 12 out of 12. 

'We know how important reliability and punctuality is to our customers, so we are delighted to be consistently delivering on this year after year,' commented Qantas domestic chief executive Lyell Strambi. 

'All airlines operate in the same ... conditions … so the difference between our on-time performance and our competitors' comes down to our dedicated people.' 

Qantas finished the year with an on-time performance rating of 85.5% for departures and 84.3% for arrivals - six percentage points ahead of Virgin. ADNFCR-408-ID-801685183-ADNFCR
