Mixed news for Glasgow airport as charter delays improve but scheduled delays worsen


Glasgow Airport topped some of the UK's biggest airports, by recording fewer charter flight delays between April and June this year. But during the same period, average delays for scheduled passengers worsened.

In the three-month period 72% of charter flights from Glasgow were early or arrived within 15 minutes, compared to 70% last year. Average delays for charter flights dropped from an average of 24 minutes in 2004 to 21 minutes.

The report by the Civil Aviation Authority showed nearly a third of charter flights in and out of the UK's major airports were delayed. Of the UK's 10 biggest airports Glasgow was the only one to have reduced the length of delays for charger flights during that period.

In the same period, the punctuality of scheduled flights from Glasgow dropped from 82% to 79%, and average delays rose from 10 minutes to 12 minutes. However, that figure was still better than the UK average.

Across the 10 airports the number of charter flights on time was 68% compared with 73% for the same period last year. Scheduled services were 75% on time compared with 78% in the same period last year, with scheduled performance worsening at all of the airports except Stansted.

[The UK airports monitored were Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham, Luton, Stansted, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London City airports.]
