Despite significant disruption due to bad weather in the middle of January, Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, again outperformed British Airways for above-average punctuality on the lifeline Jersey to London Gatwick route. Punctuality statistics just released by the Civil Aviation Authority(CAA) for January 2013 record Flybe’s 90% on-time performance on this popular route. This comfortably outperforms its competitor by some 15 percentage points.
Flybe operates up to 248 jet operated flights a month between Jersey and Gatwick at which airport it continues to outperform all other carriers for its on-time performance having won its Gold Award as the most punctual airline every quarter since it was initiated back in 2011.
Andrew Strong, Managing Director Flybe UK comments: “We are rightly proud of our above average punctuality record on this crucial route to London that is so important for both business and leisure travellers. We appreciate that passengers’ time is at a premium and realise the importance of providing customers with an affordable service that they can rely upon. The statistics speak for themselves.”
