Logan Airport ranks in the top 10 among major North American airports in the categories of fastest growing, best turnaround times, and percentage of seats operated by low-cost carriers, according to a recent report.
OAG, a provider of worldwide flight information, earlier this month published its North America’s Airport Leaders 2019 report, which ranked airports in six categories: busiest, fastest growing, most new routes, most international routes, best aircraft turnaround time, and highest percentage of seats operated by low-cost carriers.
Logan ranked No. 9 in the category of fastest growing airports, measured by departing seat capacity growth, with 5.2 percent growth (Orlando International Airport ranked No. 1 , with 7 percent growth). In the category of best turnaround times, Logan ranked No. 10 (the No. 1 spot went to Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport) based on the variance between the average on-time performance of flights arriving and average on-time performance of flights departing. And, finally, Logan ranked No. 9 in the category of low-cost collaborators due to the fact that 40 percent of seats at Logan Airport are operated by low-cost carriers (Chicago Midway International Airport topped this list, with 95 percent of seats operated by low-cost carriers).
