Bristol Airport tops UK’s punctuality table

Published on : Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Bristol Airport logoBristol Airport has been named the best performing UK airport for the second year running in a league table measuring punctuality of flights across the globe. With an on-time performance rating of 88.64 per cent, Bristol ranked sixth in the European, Middle East and Asia (EMEA) region and tenth overall in the world.

 

Leading global aviation intelligence provider, OAG, based the league tables on 50 million flight records across 900 airlines and 4,000 airports worldwide. The report covers the 2015 calendar year and is based on the proportion of flights arriving and departing within 15 minutes of the scheduled time.

 

Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer at Bristol Airport, said:

“We are delighted that Bristol Airport has been rated the UK’s most punctual airport for the second year running, and one of the ten best airports in the world in terms of on-time performance. In our busy modern world where time is precious, knowing that – nine times out of ten – your flight will operate on time is important. Of course, delays do still occur, but with uncongested airspace providing flexibility in the event of any disruption, we are in a strong position to keep inconvenience to our passengers to a minimum. This resilience is another reason increasing numbers of passengers from the South West and Wales are choosing to fly from Bristol.”

 

John Grant, Senior Analyst at OAG, said:
“Huge congratulations to Bristol Airport for achieving the ‘Best UK Airport’ in OAG’s Punctuality League 2015. With 88.64% of flights being on-time, it’s a great result for the regional airport.”
