CAA airport stats

LONDON CITY AIRPORT'S on-time performance continues to exceed the punctuality levels achieved by other UK airports.  Statistics published by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) marked London City Airport's arriving and departing scheduled services at 88% on time, 10% above the average for UK airports.  With its very simple runway arrangement ‘planes are airborne normally within 6/7 minutes of leaving the apron, with passengers often landside in less than ten minutes of the touchdown.  While punctuality declined at all other UK airports monitored by the CAA during the second quarter of 2010, at London City Airport punctuality improved. www.londoncityairport.com
