London City Airport Most Punctual In the UK

22/03/2013
London City Airport is the most punctual airport in the UK, according to figures published by the Civil Aviation Authority [CAA].

The data, which measures flights during October to December 2012, shows that 87 per cent of flights were on time at LCY, the only airport actually in London.

LCY also had the shortest average delay at just eight minutes – 25 per cent lower than that national average.

The average on-time figure across all UK airports was 79 per cent and the average delay was 12 minutes.

Editors note

London City Airport (LCY) is the only London airport situated in London itself, just three miles from Canary Wharf, seven miles from the City and 10 miles from London’s West End and linked to all via the Docklands Light Railway. Infrastructure improvements in 2011 catered for 3 million passengers and 70,000 movements, while in 2012 LCY celebrated its millionth flight, 36 millionth passenger and 25 years of operation. LCY offers a unique rapid transit proposition – a short check in, door to lounge, and a shorter arrival, tarmac to train.  10 airlines fly out of LCY, serving 43 destinations, seven of which are new for 2012, and the airport has permission to increase its operation to 120,000 movements per annum.  Further information about the airport and its services can be found at www.londoncityairport.com
