 UK Reporting Airports (from Jan 2015 data)
UK Reporting Airports Map
This was the first monthly OTP league table published which analyses punctuality data at 24 UK Reporting Airports, an increase of 14 new analysis points compared with previous datasets, and which effectively provides almost complete national coverage.

As a result we have been able to add three UK & Ireland scheduled airlines to our analysis group; Aer Lingus Regional, Eastern Airways and Loganair. Data for all three carriers is now included in the monthly Latest OTP table, and can be seen above.

Data across the site will now take advantage of all 24 UK Reporting Airports and you can read further details about the changes at our Changes in Punctuality Data in 2015 news article, or on our main Data Analysis page.
