The average Thomas Cook charter flight was delayed by 31 minutes over the summer 2007 season, with 61% on-time performance.

This represents the poorest summer season performance for the airline since 2001, and a significant drop in timekeeping compared with the summer 2006 season when the airline was awarded as runner-up for punctuality.

Punctuality was better at London Stansted, London Luton, Birmingham and London Gatwick, but poor at Manchester in particular where the airline operated a large proportion of charter flights over the season to date and only 56% on-time performance was achieved.

At Manchester nearly 1 in 5 Thomas Cook charter flights operated over an hour late.

Thomas Cook charter flights at Newcastle had the best punctuality for the airline during the winter 2006 / 07 season with an average delay of 17 minutes and 78% on-time performance.

Flights at other airports had longer delays, in particular Manchester and London Gatwick where average delays were 26 minutes and 34 minutes respectively.

At Gatwick, only around half of all Thomas Cook charter flights operated on-time during the season, the worst performance seen for the carrier at Gatwick since we began analysing records in 2002.
