To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate he has made of the number of flights at Stansted airport delayed by more than an hour between 2014 and 2018.
An assessment of the number of flights delayed can be made from flight punctuality data collected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Due to a change in the way flight punctuality data has been collected and calculated by the CAA, figures for 2018 are not comparable to previous years.
The answer is provided in the table below.
Total number of flights at Stansted where punctuality data was recorded
Percentage of recorded flights delayed by more than an hour (%)
Number of recoded flights delayed by more than an hour
