Kirkwall Airport Delay - Always Trouble with Airlines

All about Kirkwall Airport

The Kirkwall Airport (KOI) is the main airport in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, and has been operational since 1940. The airport was initially under the control of the naval services. However, in the year 1948, the control got shifted to the civil aviation services, only to later come under the management of the Highlands and Islands Airports Limited in the year 1986, who still retain ownership today.

According to available statistics, the Kirkwall Airport is quite efficient with its scheduled flight departures and arrivals. This indicates that the airline companies using the airport services are reliable, apart from the fact that a lack of delays exhibits skill and competence on the part of the airport and the various airline authorities. Flights to Edinburgh and Glasgow are among the worst in terms of meeting scheduled departure times, with wait times of 20.66 and 25.6 minutes respectively.

Flybe and Loganair are currently the only two airlines operating out of Kirkwall and connect the airport with various destinations in Scotland. Visit FlightStats for more statistical information regarding the airport.
