Latest data released this week have detailed that London Stansted Airport is the 3rd most punctual airport in the world!

Based upon findings released by FlightStats, the number one internet flight tracking and airport data portal, they state that over 88 percent of scheduled flights from Stansted were on time. This fantastic performance has taken the travel world by surprise as Stansted, London’s third major airport, has beaten many top international airports including London Heathrow and London Gatwick. Stansted was pipped to the top positions by Tokyo’s Haneda Airport and Minneapolis-St Paul.

When asked about this latest news for Stansted, Managing Director, Nick Barton, said:

“This is great news for the airport and more importantly our existing and future passengers.  It’s thanks to the help and support of our airlines, handling agents and business partners that passengers flying from Stansted are most likely to take off on-time than any other European airport.”

“Stansted is firmly established as a world leader at serving the low-cost airline sector that has transformed air travel. We have a route network that stretches to around 150 destinations with Stansted offering more direct scheduled European flights than any other airport in the world.”

In addition to this latest accolade , the airport has won a number of international awards in 2011, including the Skytrax ‘world’s best low-cost airport’ award, the ‘Air Cargo Award of Excellence’ in April, and the UK’s best cleaned transport premises at the Golden Service Awards in November.

Sarah Walton, a local Stansted Airport taxi hire operator said:

“Stansted Airport deserves recogntion for being a very user-friendly airport that makes air travel easy for people. Many of our clients use Stansted becuase it is easy to access and is quick. We believe that the airport is well placed to benefit from next year’s Olympics and we would like to congratulate  the management of Stansted Airport for their continued success.”

  1. It’s great to hear that a UK airport has achieved this sort of recognition! particularly to be voted best in Europe. I’ve never flown from Stansted before but have experienced flying from a number of European airports and Germany in particular has always been very strong so they were up against some stiff competition!

  2. Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!
