In December 2016 the CAA introduced assumed taxi times at Belfast International (BFS) and Birmingham (BHX) airports in the punctuality datasets for April 2016 and May 2016, which were re-released thereby replacing the original published data.
This change was made because these airports moved in line with other UK Reporting Airports
by measuring flight movement times at takeoff and landing, rather than departure and arrival at the gate.
Our Latest OTP league tables and analysis for April 2016 and May 2016 were affected by the update and consequently the Latest OTP pages and related news pages for these statistics have been revised. The previous analysis has been removed and the new data can be found here:
The new taxi time assumptions for UK Reporting Airports
from April 2016, following this change, can be found on our data page

page has been amended accordingly.
