Flybe Wins Gatwick Gold for Punctuality

Flybe outperformed all other airlines flying to and from London Gatwick Airport during the April – June 2011 quarter for on-time arrival and departure performance, receiving the airport’s gold award ahead of British Airways (silver) and Ryanair (bronze).

Flybe operates 408 flights a week on nine routes out of London Gatwick to Aberdeen, Belfast City, Bergerac, Guernsey, Inverness, the Isle of Man, Jersey, Newquay and Nantes.

Andrew Strong, Managing Director, Flybe UK, said: “Flybe is committed to providing excellent service to its customers and we are extremely pleased that our punctuality performance at the country’s second busiest airport has been recognised with its first-ever gold award for the most punctual airline.

“The statistics speak for themselves and are a testament to the commitment to on-time performance by our staff. All at Flybe recognise that time is an extremely valuable commodity in today’s busy world and it is important for passengers to reach their destinations on time.”
