WIZZ AIR took the crown for the UK's worst airline for flight delays in 2021, according to data from the Civil Aviation Authority analysed by the PA news agency.
Figures showed that Wizz Air - which operates from 10 British airports, including Luton and
Gatwick - ran on average 14 minutes behind schedule.
Wizz Air was followed by Tui's average delay of 13 minutes and British Airways' 12 minutes.
Low-cost titans such as Easyjet and Ryanair performed better with Easyjet ranked second best, with a hold-up of four minutes, while Ryanair came in third.
Wizz Air did not respond to a request for comment.
UK airlines have been hit by staff shortages in their own ranks as well as at airports this year as the aviation industry struggles to keep up with the swift take-off of post-pandemic consumer demand.
Carriers have axed thousands of flights to improve reliability.
