Summer 2009 represented the first season with a significant number of Viking Airlines charter flights at UK reporting airports, with relatively poor punctuality recorded at both London Gatwick and Manchester airports.
At Gatwick performance was slightly above average for the airline, with the average flight operating 36 minutes behind schedule and 53% of flights operating on time.
At Manchester poor timekeeping was demonstrated with a 45 minute average delay and only 42% on-time performance recorded. Nearly 1 in 5 Viking charter flights at Manchester operated over an hour behind schedule during the season.
The airline finished in bottom position in our league table of charter airlines
during the season.
