Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has got the year off to a great start following the publication of a report by Aviation analytics company Cirium that shows that more flights depart on time from Liverpool than from any other airport in England.

Data collected by Cirium during 2021 highlights that 90.23% of all flights from LJLA departed within 15 minutes of their scheduled time - accepted as being on time within the aviation industry. Liverpool topped the performance table when compared with other airports in England and only just behind the UK’s best performing airports of Belfast International and George Best Belfast City.

Paul Staples, Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s Operations Director commented, “Despite the continued challenges due to Covid-19 on our operations over the past 12 months, we have continued to maintain the highest standards of operational performance and are particularly pleased to see that we lead the way in England when it comes to on time performance.

This is really important both for our airline partners and for our passengers who choose to travel from here and is recognition for all the hard work by staff from the Airport, airlines, handling agents and other companies working together to help flights operate on time.

Passengers from across the City Region, the North West and North Wales can continue to benefit from our Faster Easier Friendlier approach, knowing that more flights from Liverpool depart on time than from any other airport in England.
