Statistics published by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for the second quarter of 2011 (2Q11) showed London City Airport’s arriving and departing scheduled services at 89% on time, three percentage points higher than any other major UK airport, claims LCY.
London City Airport believes this performance results from the airport’s investment in additional aircraft parking stands in 2008, along with the ground operations team working closely with all airlines operating at the airport to deliver efficient and punctual service.
Richard Gooding, chief executive officer, London City Airport commented, “We are delighted with the performance shown in the CAA statistics. Our ground staff strive to ensure that passengers and airline’s enjoy fast throughput at all times. With the best punctuality levels and close proximity to the financial districts and the City, London City Airport is the number one choice for business travellers.”
Punctuality statistics are calculated by for ten UK airports – London Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, London City Airport, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Newcastle. Information is published each month by the CAA showing the average delays on scheduled and charter services.
