Aviation regulator the CAA has more than doubled the number of airports it monitors for flight delays.
An additional 14 airports are being assessed by the Civil Aviation Authority, bringing the total to 24.
The increased coverage means the proportion of UK passenger flights monitored for punctuality will rise from 73% to 90%, and the proportion of air passenger journeys increases from 83% to 97%.
The airports newly covered are Aberdeen, Belfast City, Belfast International, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Doncaster Sheffield, Durham Tees Valley, East Midlands, Exeter, Jersey, Liverpool, Leeds-Bradford and Southampton.
They join 10 airports already monitored by the CAA – Birmingham, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Heathrow, London City, Luton, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted.
The move comes as the CAA continues a drive to publish more information to assist passengers make comparisons between UK air transport services.
CAA regulatory policy group director, Iain Osborne, said: “The CAA is here to look after passengers’ interests and we want to make sure people can make more informed decisions about which airport they would like to fly from.
“Our expanded coverage means even more air passengers can now see for themselves how well the country’s busiest airports are performing against flight punctuality.”
