Leeds Bradford airport had the highest number of on-time flights in the UK for the second consecutive quarter.
According to analysis from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the airport’s passengers had an average delay of 10 minutes for Q3 2015, while the average across all other UK airports was 15 minutes.
The CAA analysis covered the period Q3 2015 and included on-time performance statistics from across the UK airports covering 5 London and 19 regional airports.
Across the UK in the third quarter of last year on-time performance dropped 3 per cent compared to the same period in 2014.
London airports suffered a 4 per cent fall and regional airports on-time performance fell from 80 per cent to 77 per cent.
CAA policy director Tim Johnson said punctuality was the “worst” for any summer period since 2010 highlighting the need for airport expansion.
“The strong passenger demand and a drop in punctuality also underlines the importance of addressing the ongoing pressures on runway capacity in the South East and the need to modernise the UK's airspace.”
