Although you can’t always pick the airport you fly to, from, or through, AirHelp has released its list of the worst airports for summer travel. If you have the freedom to avoid certain routes, this list can be useful.
Based on the proportion of delays the airport experienced in the previous month, the rankings are determined. A minimum of 5,000 flights and their timings were examined. The list can assist you in making preparations to avoid certain airports. If you can’t, then by adding extra travel time once the weekend travel surge gets underway.
If you’re going to Las Vegas, you might not just be returning home with a headache and some gaming losses. According to measurements provided by AirHelp, Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas is both the busiest and the worst in terms of delays. This past month, a staggering 35 per cent of all flights at the airport were delayed or cancelled.
It is not good news for the tens of thousands of tourists who are anticipated to travel to the city during the long weekend.
Other Airports That May Be The Worst For Summer Travel
