Airport achieves UK’s only 5-star rating for flight punctuality
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has been recognised for its outstanding services with a prestigious accolade.
The Peel-owned airport has been awarded the UK’s only 5-star airport rating by the world’s leading air travel intelligence company, OAG for flight punctuality, confirming its status as the UK’s faster, easier, friendlier airport.
With an on-time performance of 84.6% of flights running on time, the 5-star ranking represents excellent performance over a rolling 12-month period.
Out of 18 UK airports, Liverpool is the only one to receive a 5-star rating and one of only six in Western Europe to achieve this highest award.
Globally, Liverpool is listed in the top 10% of airports.
Paul Staples, LJLA’s operations director, said: “Liverpool has developed an excellent reputation for operational efficiency in recent years.
“Whilst continuing to grow passenger numbers over the past 12 months we continue to maintain the highest standards of operational performance and are particularly pleased to see that we now lead the way in the UK when it comes to on time performance.
“This is really important both for our airline partners and for our passengers who choose to travel from here.
“This 5-star rating is recognition for all the hard work by staff from the airport, airlines, handling agents and other companies working together to help flights operate on time.”
