According to the report, more than 88 percent of flights arriving in Portland were on time in March, defined as within 15 minutes of scheduled arrival. Salt Lake City was second and Seattle third. Vancouver, British Columbia’s airport took fourth, making it a clean sweep of top spots by airports in the West.
