Leeds Bradford Airport is once again top of the list for punctuality.

Figures from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) show that it had the highest number of on-time flights for the second consecutive quarter.

In the third quarter of 2015, it also recorded the biggest year-on-year improvement.

Passengers had an average delay of 10 minutes, whilst the average figure for UK airports was 15 minutes.

Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport's Aviation Development Director, said: "Leeds Bradford Airport are very pleased that our hard work working closely with our airline partners has delivered once again a high and improving level of on-time performance.

"The CAA analysis shows that our commitment has delivered the best result of any UK airport, with 84% of LBA's flights departing on time.

"With short taxi times to the runway, departure gates no more than a five-minute walk from security, new boarding zones and an airport team that is dedicated to improving customer service, we are proud that Leeds Bradford has been able to register the highest year-on-year improvement across the UK."
