London City Airport is the UK’s leading airport for on-time performance, according to recently released Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) statistics.
Flight punctuality figures from the final quarter of 2011 indicate that the airport’s on-time performance for scheduled services rose by seven percentage points to 87% when comparing Q4 2011 to Q4 2010. This is also a substantial seven percentage points higher than the average recorded for London airports and all UK airports.
London City also succeeded in reducing the average delay time by six minutes to just nine minutes, during the same period, which it states is due to the effectiveness of its ground operations team and their ongoing efforts to deliver the most efficient and punctual service to passengers.
Richard Gooding, Chief Executive Officer, London City Airport said, “We work hard to deliver a consistent, time-saving proposition to our passengers and so we are delighted with our leadership position, as shown in the CAA’s most recent statistics.”
