Birmingham is named the world's most punctual airport in 2016 by OAG, the air travel specialist

Birmingham Airport has been named the world’s most punctual airport in 2016 by air travel
intelligence company OAG, with 91.28% of arriving and departing flights operating on time

With over 100,000 scheduled flights from Birmingham Airport last year, the most punctual
route was to Dublin, boasting an on-time score of over 95 per cent. The UK airport beat
contenders from countries such as Japan, America and Germany to claim the global crown

On receiving the award, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Executive, Paul Kehoe, said, "To be
crowned the world’s most punctual airport in 2016 is a tremendous prize, particularly in
the busiest twelve months in our 77 year history"

"This achievement is a result of a team effort by the seven thousand employees and
140 companies operating at the airport - from the ground handlers to bus drivers,
fuellers to caterers, and cleaners to office staff. We have invested £350 million in the
last ten years to improve the airport infrastructure and we’re currently working on a
further £100 million development project to improve passenger facilities even further"

"We work closely with our airlines and handling agents to ensure that delays, which
are within our control, are kept to a minimum, and we thank all of our partners for
their continued hard work to become the world’s most punctual airport"

John Grant, Senior Analyst at OAG, said: "The UK’s airports and airlines have always
been leaders in the global aviation industry, delivering exceptionally high service
levels. The success of Birmingham is just another example of how the UK’s regional
airports have created world-class facilities and networks that both connect their
regional communities to the world, and provide valuable economic growth"

The multi-million pound developments seen over the last decade at Birmingham
Airport have included a runway extension to allow for more long haul flights, a
new state of the art pier with parking stands to accommodate the world’s largest
aircraft, more security lanes and becoming the first airport of its size to operate
its own air traffic control services in 2015
