Albany airport on-time rate is one of the best around

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Officials at Albany's airport are celebrating a high water mark for flight service.

In October nearly all flights in and out of the airport were on time.

Airport Director Yvette Ahele said, "Normally, it hangs out around the 75 to 80%. That's what the norm is all over the country, and we actually exceeded that. We're 95%, and we only had one cancellation last month. We've had 16 cancellations in the last 12 months. That averages a little bit more than one a month, so that's amazing."

Over the last year, ExpressJet, the carrier that serves Albany, has an overall on-time arrival rate of 72%.
