CityJet, London’s business airline, is the most on time airline on the four most hotly contested and busiest business routes from the capital. New figures from flightontime.info* reveal CityJet is the fastest and most punctual way to get to Amsterdam, Dublin, Edinburgh and Paris from London.

According to flightontime.info, the airline, which operates a network of nearly 600 flights per week from its hub at London City Airport, achieved On Time Performance (OTP) ratings of: 

  • Amsterdam - 90.84%
  • Dublin – 83.82%
  • Edinburgh - 90.17%
  • Paris - 85.85%

It is also the number one for punctuality on the London-Eindhoven route with an OTP rating of 91.84%. The statistics were analysed over the six months to end of June 2009 and place the airline ahead of rivals such as British Airways, BMI, Easyjet and Ryanair. 

Says Geoffrey O’Byrne White, CEO, CityJet:
‘To be recognised as the most punctual business airline in London is a testament to our operations at London City Airport. No other airline could ever claim to be number one on the four busiest, most competitive business routes out of the capital. We’re now London’s fastest airline operating out of the fastest airport in London. It’s a win win service for business flyers.’ 

CityJet’s overall punctuality across its network for the six months from January to June 2009 reveals an average OTP of 90.8%, based on a combination of flightontime and CityJet statistics**, with the remainder of its network stacking up as follows: 

  • Antwerp – 92.93%

  • Jersey – 90.32%
  • Luxembourg – 92.2%
  • Nantes – 94.7%***
  • Rotterdam – 93.85%
  • Strasbourg – 91.5%

The new punctuality figures reaffirm CityJet’s commitment to providing its customers with the most logical time and cost saving options for business travel from London. 

CityJet flies from the only airport that is actually in London, situated just 22 minutes from central London on the DLR. London City Airport also offers passengers the fastest check in of any airport in the UK, just 15 minutes before departure.
