Newcastle Airport flights most punctual in the UK

Written by Casey

A recent survey conducted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has found that charter holiday flights from Newcastle Airport are the most punctual of any UK airport.

In the first quarter of 2009, 85% of all charter flights departed on time, compared to the national average of 68%.

Scheduled flights also outperformed the national average, with 82% departing on time between January and March of this year.  In addition, the average length of unavoidable delays to chartered flights was less than half that of every other airport in the survey.

Dave Laws, chief executive of Newcastle International Airport, praised the teamwork and efforts of employees across the business, and also said, “This survey reinforces the sense in flying from Newcastle International, rather than travelling to larger airport where punctuality suffers and delays are often much longer.”

Their excellent record for on-time flights isn’t the only good news for travellers in the Northeast of England.  Park and Fly Newcastle, a GoSimply Award-winning airport parking service, is located just 0.2 miles from the terminal building at Newcastle Airport.
