SLC International Airport gets best in on-time arrival
Salt Lake City International Airport recorded the best on-time arrival record among major U.S. airports last year, helped by Delta Air Lines, which was able to maintain its performance level despite filing for bankruptcy in September, according to a recent release from Ski Utah.
The U.S. Transportation Department reported through December, 83.46 percent of all flights arriving at the airport landed on time at SLC International putting the airport at the top of the government’s list of the 33 biggest airports around the country. The previous year, SLC International was No. 3.
Delta was able to maintain its record of being on time for 83.64 percent of its flights, despite the fact it added 29 new nonstop destinations and flew an additional 3.8 million passengers in and out of Salt Lake City in 2005, said the Ski Utah report.
In total, the airlines flew 22.2 million passengers in and out of Salt Lake City last year, a 21 percent jump from 2004. Delta accounted for almost all of the increase, according to SLC International Airport spokespeople its passenger numbers rose 29 percent to 16.7 million in 2005.
