Taking into account all scheduled and chartered departures from UK airports by airlines with more than 2,500, Hungarian Airline Wizz Air was found to be the biggest culprit in 2022.
The airline had an average delay of 46 minutes and 6 seconds.

Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands, said: “Placing sixth out of 31 short-haul airlines is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams and our supplier partners; especially in a year where our industry continued to work through many post-pandemic challenges."
He added: “Providing our customers with a safe and reliable on-time service is a complex task. We’re proud that the local airlines in Guernsey and Jersey are punching above their weight compared to the CAA’s UK peer group.”
