O’Hare Airport shows improved on-time performance in July

SHARE O’Hare Airport shows improved on-time performance in July

July was a good month for O’Hare Airport, which saw its on-time performance in both departures and arrivals improve this July compared to last July.

O’Hare’s on-time arrival rate increased to 73.66 percent this July from 71.82 percent in July 2012. That shot up O’Hare’s on-time arrival rank from No 24 among 29 major airports nationwide for July 2012 to No. 15 for July 2013.

O’Hare’s July on-time departure ranking also improved compared to last July — from No. 27 to No. 22 — due to an uptick in its July 2013 on-time departure rates.

But apparently due to a poor previous six months, O’Hare’s year-to-date on-time arrival and departure ranks still managed to dip. Its worst rank came in year-to-date on-time departures, where it landed rock bottom among 29 major airports.

The rankings are based on data from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics.
