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).

The data for the study was collected from June 2018 to May 2019, with the exception of the turnaround data, which was collected from May 2018 to April 2019. The airports were sorted into the following four categories before they were ranked: major, large, medium, and small. Logan was among the 32 North American airports included in the “major” size group, defined as handling more than 1 percent of scheduled departing seat capacity in North America.
