ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — A local airport gets a top rating in a new nationwide performance report.

Southern Airways Express, which is operated by Southern Airways, provides flight service at the Altoona-Blair County Airport. The airline says  the latest figures show that Southern Airways has the best on-time performance and highest reliability of all U.S. carriers.

“In addition to the fact that they were the number one airline domestically for on-time performance, Altoona was their number one station for on-time performance,” says Altoona-Blair County Airport Manager Tracy Plessinger.

The report reflects the performance of U. S. airlines in April.

Plessinger says the findings show that passengers from Altoona can count on making  their connecting flight and getting to their final destination on time.
