London City Airport - Most on time flights of all UK airports

19/12/2012
London City Airport [LCY] had the most flights on time of all UK airports in the third quarter of the year, according to figures released today by the Civil Aviation Authority [CAA]. 

LCY recorded the best on-time performance for scheduled flights of the ten airports monitored, at 91 per cent during July to September, and the shortest average delay of just five minutes.

Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport said:  “These figures are a huge boost for our team who have been working tirelessly to improve turnaround times for aircraft and get flights out on time.  London City Airport prides itself on the convenience it offers to passengers, from the ease of access from central London, to the short time it takes to get through departures and arrivals, and the reliability of our service demonstrates that we are delivering on that promise.”

The average on-time performance across all airports was 80 per cent and average delay 12 minutes.
