(minutes – 75th percentile)
(Contributing causes to increased delays)
|05 March||18-19||4.7||Concentration of demand due longer than anticipated flight times during period of reduced capacity (single runway operations continuing longer than planned).|
|19 March||10-12||6.3||Concentration of demand during late morning peak due to early non‑compliance.|
|20 March||10-11||6.2||Concentration of demand during late morning peak due to missed approach and rescue flight.|
