Flights Reaching Early Slow Down Your Takeoff


India’s three busiest airports — Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru — are notorious for flight delays. While a crippling infra crunch at these hubs is responsible for you not taking off or landing here on time on most occasions, a study by air traffic control (ATC) has found airlines’ scramble for better on time performance (OTP) record by questionable means is adding to the problem of delays.

ATC carried a study at these three airports last year between September 24 and November 30, focusing on whether flights headed to these places as per the schedule from their origin airports, and what percentage of flights actually reach these airports at their slotted hour.

The study, covering 46,378 flights and accessed by TOI, found 2,569 flights or 5.5% left before their schedule departure time from over 60 origin airports for these three choked hubs. As many as 11,249, or almost a quarter, reached these three airports more than 15 minutes before their schedule departure time. Read more
