Belfast City Airport has been ranked the UK’s Most Punctual Airport for Q1 2023 according to data released by the Civil Aviation Authority.

The data analyses arriving and departing scheduled and chartered flights, with figures for the beginning of 2023 revealing that Belfast City Airport experienced the shortest average delay times followed by partner airports Southampton and London City.

Matthew Hall, Chief Executive at Belfast City Airport said:

“We are committed to delivering an excellent passenger experience for the millions of people that travel through our airport every year and it is fantastic news that we have been named, once again, as the UK’s most punctual airport.

“This achievement is testament to our team’s dedication to going above and beyond, consistently surpassing expectations to ensure our passengers enjoy a seamless and pleasant travel experience.

“This is further enhanced by our outstanding location, only five minutes from Belfast City Centre, and our speedy security times, which stand at an average of six minutes.

This recent success follows the news that Belfast City Airport was Northern Ireland’s most punctual airport throughout 2022.
