Bristol Airport has topped flight punctuality league tables published recently, with an on-time performance rating of 94.6 per cent making it the world’s best.

Leading global aviation intelligence provider, OAG, based the league tables on 43.5 million flight records from 4,000 airports worldwide.

The report covers the 2014 calendar year and is based on the proportion of flights arriving and departing within 15 minutes of the scheduled time.

Robert Sinclair, Bristol Airport’s CEO, comments:“We are delighted that Bristol Airport has topped the table in OAG’s Punctuality League measuring flight punctuality across the world in 2014.

“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.

“It also shows the clear benefits of our continued investment in infrastructure over the last decade or more, from the installation of a CATIII all-weather landing system to the construction of new boarding facilities such as the central walkway which opened last summer.”
