Jetstar Asia is the Worlds 8th Most Punctual Airline in the World and 2nd Most Punctual LCC in 2017

Mr. Bara Pasupathi,Jetstar Asia CEO said that on-time performance is important to all airlines and topping the ranking against low-fares and world-class carriers is an outstanding feat.

As the second largest airline group operating out of Singapore Changi Airport, thousands of Jetstar customers expect to get to their destinations on time. With more than 600 weekly services operating out of Changi, achieving a top award for punctuality underscores how important the customer is to us and reveals the strength of our systems, processes and teams in Singapore and across the 26 ports we fly to.

Our teams are encouraged by the recognition and will strive to uphold our commitment to deliver positive experiences for our customers, said Mr Pasupathi.

Following on the announcement of Jetstar Asia being the only airline in Asia Pacific to achieve a five-star rating for punctuality in 2017, OAG has released its latest Punctuality League rankings for 2018 that ranks Jetstar Asia as tops in Singapore.

Of the top 250 low cost carriers in the world, Jetstar Asia also ranked second best for on-time performance with a rating of 86.5 per cent.

The most recent report also reveals that Jetstar Asia has scaled up its ranking by six places, from 14th to become the 8th most punctual airline in the world.

The rankings are based on 57 million flight records using full-year data from 2017 for the worlds largest airlines and airports. Being on time is defined as flights arriving no more than 15 minutes after the scheduled timing.

In October 2017, OAG released its standings for on-time performance for airlines and airports and announced that Jetstar Asia was the only airline in Asia Pacific among 390 airlines across the globe to achieve a five-star rating for punctuality. In that report, only 14 airlines achieved the five-star rating, of which, eight are full-service carriers and six are low-cost carriers. Within the Jetstar Group, Jetstar Airways is tops in Australia, ranking 16 in the world with an OTP of 75.99 percent.

Many Utilities Believe Cyberattacks Could Bring Down the Electric Distribution Grid in the Next Five Years,

Almost two-thirds (63 percent) of utility executives believe their country faces at least a moderate risk of electricity supply interruption from a cyberattack on electric distribution grids in the next five years. This figure, included in Accentures (NYSE: ACN) new report, Outsmarting Grid Security Threats, part of the Digitally Enabled Grid research program, rises to 76 percent for North American utilities executives. The survey of more than 100 utilities executives from over 20 countries revealed interruptions to the power supply from cyberattacks is the most serious concern, cited by 57 percent of respondents. Just as worrying is the physical threat to the distribution grid. Fifty-three percent of executives cite employee and/or customer safety and 43 percent of executives cite the destruction of physical assets as their biggest concerns.As highly sophisticated, weaponized malware is being developed, a greater risk to distribution businesses arises from cyber criminals and others who would use it for malicious purposes, said. Pakorn Suriyabhivadh, Senior Manager, Accenture Resources, Accenture in Thailand Attacks on industrial control systems could disrupt grid reliability and the safety and well-being of employees and the public. Not getting it right could be a brand killer, as well as a real threat for a country and the community.

While the increased connectivity of industrial control systems enabled by the smart grid will drive significant benefits in the form of safety, productivity, improved quality of service and operational efficiency, 88 percent agreed that cybersecurity is a major concern in smart grid deployment. Distribution utilities are also increasingly exposed by the growth of connected Internet of Things (IoT) domestic devices, such as connected home hubs and smart appliances. These bring a new risk to distribution companies, which is hard to quantify, with 77 percent of utilities executives suggesting IoT as a potential threat to cybersecurity.In Asia Pacific and Europe, cyber criminals are seen as the biggest risk for distribution businesses by almost a third of respondents. However, in North America, attacks by governments are considered a bigger risk than in regions worldwide (32 percent).

Deployment of the smart grid could open new attack vectors if cybersecurity is not a core component of the design, added Pakorn. However, the smart grid can also bring sophisticated protection to assets that were previously vulnerable through improved situational awareness and control of the grid.Utilities must improve cybersecurity capabilities and develop a resilient delivery system A significant number of distribution utilities have much to do in developing a robust cyber response capability with more than four in 10 respondents claiming cybersecurity risks were not, or were only partially integrated, into their broader risk management processes.In addition, the increasing convergence of physical and cyber threats requires the development of capabilities that go well beyond simple security-related national compliance requirements. Utilities must invest in resilience of their smart grid as well as effective response and recovery capabilities.Proper protection is challenging due to the complexity of distribution electric grids and increasingly sophisticated, well-funded attackers, and many distribution utilities are still under-protected and under-prepared. Only 6 percent felt extremely well-prepared and 48 percent well-prepared, when it came to restoring normal grid operations following a cyberattack.Cybersecurity must become a core competency in the industry by protecting the entire value chain and the extended ecosystem end-to-end. Utilities, already well-versed in reliable power delivery and power restoration, need an agile and swift capability that creates and leverages situational awareness, and that can quickly react and intervene to protect the grid, said Pakorn. Developing this new capability will require ongoing innovation, a practical approach to scaling, and collaboration with partners to drive the most value.
