European Punctuality Figures

Tue Dec 19, 2000 12:36 am

Here are some of the AEA (Assn. of European Airlines) puntuality figures for intra-European flights listed by airport. I have listed only the best and the worst carriers having at least 100 departures or more during the third quarter of 2000, which is also the period the report covers. According to AEA policy, flights within 15 minutes of schedule are not regarded as delayed for the purpose of compiling these numbers. Only AEA members are included (intra-European flights only). The percentage indicates how many percents of the carriers departure was delayed more than 15 minutes and the average for all AEA memebers at that airports.

Amsterdam (AMS)

Swissair has decided that they don't want to be included in this report. Do they have something to hide?

Yes, SAS and Finnair are doing very well and it has to do with mentality of the people in the Nordic region. You can also see that OSL, HEL, ARN and CPH has the lowest average delay percentage. How can air travellers prefer anything else than these airports to travel through ???

Yep FBWless, it´s indeed worth noting that the Nordic airports are doing very well.
But the mentality of people up here in the Nordic region, as you suggest, has precious little to do with it.
The airspace surrounding the main Nordic airports is not by any means as congested as the case is further south and west in our part of the world.
And if winter is harsh, we can count on some delays because of de-icing, slippery or snowy runways and so on.

But by all means, those numbers are good!
