Bristol airport is the most punctual in the world, according to league tables published today.
It received an on-time performance rating of 94.4% from global aviation intelligence provider, OAG.
The results were based on 43.5 million flight records from 4,000 airports worldwide across 2014. Punctuality was based on the proportion of flights arriving and departing within 15 minutes of the scheduled time.
Robert Sinclair, Bristol airport’s chief executive, said: “This achievement is a joint effort and is testament to the collaborative approach taken by airlines, ground handlers and our own team.
“It demonstrates the advantages offered by regional airports such as Bristol, where airlines operate in uncongested airspace with greater flexibility and resilience in the event of any disruption.”
London Luton was rated the next most punctual UK airport, coming 10th in the small airport category.
