Flybe tops the latest quarterly Fly Quiet and Green league table for environmental performance at Heathrow Airport.

The UK carrier operates Bombardier Q400 turboprops from Heathrow to Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports in Scotland. It was followed by Aer Lingus, British Airways (short-haul), Finnair, SAS, Etihad, Delta, United, Air India, and Qantas. Oman Air rose 15 places and Cathay Pacific improved its ranking by 11 places.

Among the 50 airlines assessed in the league table, the worst performer was Kuwait Airways. Turkish Airways (long- and short-haul) and El Al also scored badly.

The latest Fly Quiet and Green results show improvements in track keeping, and a decrease of more than 30% in late-night departures (between 2330 h and 0430 h) in 2017 compared with 2016.

“Last year [2017] we announced our intention of halving the number of late running flights over 5 years – I hope that the 30% reduction in the first year alone will give confidence that we say what we will do and we do what we say,” said Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye.
