Our Data

Important Note: Source data for May 2016 was re-issued by the CAA in mid December 2016, following some changes to their analysis methodology (see here for details).

The analysis on this page relates to the new dataset and therefore supersedes the May 2016 analysis originally published on 30 September 2016, which has been removed.

flybe flights climbed seven places in the monthly OTP league table for May 2016 to achieve top position at UK Reporting Airports with 83.5% OTP.

Loganair flights achieved second place with 82.9% OTP a significant improvement of 12 places in the league table since April 2016, with Aer Lingus Regional steady in third and Eastern Airways flights also seeing a big improvement climbing six places month-on-month to secure fourth position, both carriers recording the same OTP level as Loganair.

At the bottom of the table easyJet flight punctuality fell to last place with just 67.2% OTP for the month, signalling a possible return to the dreadful summer of punctuality performance for the carrier at UK airports in 2015. Thomson Airways flights were not far ahead of easyJet in 14th place recording 70.2% OTP.
