Flybe recognised as top UK airline for punctuality (Which? Dec 2014)
Arriving on time and being able to quickly collect luggage after a flight are important issues for passengers. That’s why we are delighted to have been recognised recently by influential consumer watchdog ‘Which?’ as the UK’s most punctual airline.
The study was conducted by an analysis of monthly punctuality statistics gathered by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for the year September 2013-August 2104 and a survey of 7,729 ‘Which?’ members in October 2014.
What’s more, we have also come out on top as the most efficient small/medium sized airline for baggage performance at London Gatwick Airport.
According to a recent report issued by the airport, Flybe beat the likes of Ryanair, EasyJet and BA amongst those operating small/medium sized aircraft most frequently from Gatwick. Handling agents, Menzies, offloaded baggage from 84 Flybe flights within the airport’s designated 35-minute target, achieving the only 100% performance reported.
Punctuality claim based on a survey of 7,729 Which? members in October 2014, and analysis of monthly punctuality data produced by the CAA, for flights to Birmingham, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Heathrow, London City, Luton, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted between September 2013 and August 2014.
