Top 5 most punctual airports in Europe in 2022

At a time when the continent has faced many aviation problems, one of the European airports had a percentage of compliance with the declared schedule last year did not exceed 85%.

Nevertheless, here are the top five European airports in terms of punctuality in 2022:

 1. Stuttgart

Germany Stuttgart Airport (STR) is at the top of the list for 2022 with a punctuality rate of 84.20%. This is well below the levels recorded by a number of air harbors in 2021, and is more like the state of the industry during the mid-90s.

It is clear that in 2022, European aviation has faced many challenges, such as shortages of personnel and strikes, which have made it increasingly difficult to carry out punctual operations. Stuttgart has also seen a relatively high cancellation rate, with 2.45% of its flights suffering this fate. At the same time, the results of the airport's work turned out to be better than in 2019, when its punctuality was at the level of 78.75%.

 2. Dublin

< p>In terms of cancellations, Ireland's Dublin Airport (DUB) fared somewhat better, with just 0.99% of flights delayed last year. However, it is inferior to Stuttgart in terms of punctuality: 82.69% of its flights arrived or departed within 15 minutes of the scheduled one. In 2019, its figure was 76.73%.

 3. Malta

In 2022, at the only airport on the Mediterranean island of Malta, known like Malta International Airport (MLA), comparatively few flights were cancelled: only 0.34% had this status on the scoreboard. But how did he manage to stick to the schedule?

Overall, 81.75% of the airport's flights departed or arrived within 15 minutes of their scheduled time. This was enough for Malta to take third place in Europe, although, unlike its competitors, there was a clear regression compared to 2019. Indeed, in that pre-pandemic year, the punctuality rate was 82.33%. However, even this level would not allow the Maltese to rise above third place today.

 4. Rome Ciampino

Fourth on the list, and latest airport with over four-fifths of flights on time last year, is Rome Ciampino International Airport (CIA). Until 1960, that is, before the opening of Leonardo da Vinci's Fiumicino airport, it was the main airport in Rome, and its passenger traffic was more than 2 million passengers a year. In 2022, the second airport in the Italian capital reached 80.73%. This is more than 2.5% better than the 78.22% recorded in 2019. As for the cancellations, there were few — 0.31% of flights were canceled for various reasons.

 5. Trondheim

Closing the top five with an on-time indicator of 79.67% Norwegian airport Trondheim-Vernes (TRD). Compared to pre-crisis times, namely 2019, his punctuality, according to the numbers, has decreased by 2.6%. Meanwhile, the cancellation rate was also quite high in 2022: a total of 2.75% of airport flights were not operated last year.
