Britons may wait all year for their holidays, but the delay in jetting off to warmer climes is sometimes longer than anticipated. With many holidays starting with a flight, airlines’ lack of punctuality can turn a holiday into a nightmare.

The Russian airline had an incredible punctuality level of 0.7 percent.

It got worst for Yakutia, with some months seeing not a single flight on time.

From February to July 2021, the airline operated 5,730 flights and only 41 were on time.

Second worst was Ural Airlines.

Another Russian airline, Ural almost looked good next to Yakutia.

It operated 30,000 flights in the first half of 2021, and 47 percent were on time.


Coming third was Edelweiss Air.

Part of the Lufthansa Group, the Swiss airline was on time almost 62 percent of the time.

While this was nowhere near as bad as the previous two airlines, it was still not enough to get it out of the list of worst airlines in Europe for punctuality.

Holidaymakers may be slightly bewildered by some of these numbers.

They should be reassured, however, that not every airline was as bad as the bottom three.

Rounding up the top three was Vueling.

The second Spanish airline on the least of most punctual was Vueling.

With 94.4 percent of its flights on time, the airline is doing well in the punctuality department.
