Passengers choosing to travel via Liverpool John Lennon Airport are more likely to have their flights operate on time compared to flights operating from 10 other top UK airports, according to the latest results published by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Figures for the second quarter of 2013 covering the period April to June, show that the overall on-time performance of scheduled flights (defined as the proportion of flights arriving or departing early or up to 15 minutes late) at the 10 popular UK airports monitored was 81%. At JLA however, some 93% of scheduled flights operated on time over this period, highlighting that flights operating from and to Liverpool are some of the most punctual in the UK.

When compared to elsewhere in the North West, Manchester Airport remained in line with the UK airport average, with 81% of scheduled flights reported as being on time. Liverpool’s figure of 93% was a slight improvement over last year’s impressive second quarter figure of 92%.

Paul Staples, Airport Director for JLA commented, “These latest statistics go to show that the hard work spent improving operations and the way in which aircraft are serviced here at Liverpool continues to really pay dividends.
Our airline customers are delighted with the service they receive at JLA and when choosing where to fly from, passengers across the region have the confidence of knowing that more flights operate on time from here than at many of our competitors.”
