About Us

Citizens for On Time Flights is dedicated to promoting more efficient air travel. Every day, thousands of flights are delayed, millions of gallons of fuel wasted and billions of dollars lost because the government has systematically failed to modernize the nation’s air traffic control system. The status quo is unacceptable. We cannot continue to run the air traffic control system the same way since the 1950s and expect different results.

The travelling public is fed up with an antiquated system unbefitting of the most powerful nation in the world. Our mission is to show Congress that inaction has consequences, and we intend to give voice to consumers who want change.

Citizens for On Time Flights is a grassroots program facilitated by Airlines For America, the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, providing consumers with information on the benefits of air traffic control reform. The traveling and shipping public carries too much of the burden of delays, cancellations and wasted fuel, and Citizens for On Time Flights is dedicated to giving consumers who want more efficient air travel a voice in the debate for a better air traffic control system. 

As of August 30, 2017, more than 102,000 consumers have used the “take action” tool on ontimeflights.org to write their Representative and Senators, and they have sent more than 256,000 messages to Members of Congress advocating for air traffic control modernization.
