NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport improved its on-time arrivals and departures last year, but still ranked last and next-to-last in those categories among U.S. airports.

The Federal Bureau of Transportation Statistics lists Newark 32nd out of 32 major airports with 62 % of arriving flights on time last year. That's better than the 59% Newark posted in 2007, but it's well below the national average of 76% for 2008.

Newark ranked next-to-last with 69% on-time departures, compared to the national average of 79%. New York's La Guardia and JFK airports also ranked in the bottom quarter, although JFK improved its on-time departures from 69% in 2007 to more than 75% last year.
