Summer and holiday travel has always been something to test the patience of all kinds of travelers, whether families, individuals or frequent travelers, for whom travel is common, but especially bad this year.
Statistics compiled by tracking sites like FlightAware show this Some airports now have a delay statistic that lists more than half of all flights Take off outside the scheduled departure time.
In addition to these numbers, there are also large amounts of cancellations that further affect travelers because those affected are not only late but require an entirely new route, and this usually adds hours if not an entire day (worst case) to travel time.
according to FlightAware These are the worst culprits in this summer’s travel disaster, based on research data from May 26 to July 19.
Airports with the largest percentage of delayed flights:
- Canada: Toronto Pearson International Airport – 52.5%
- Germany: Frankfurt Airport – 45.4%
- France: Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport – 43.2%
- Netherlands: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol – 41.5%
- UK: Gatwick Airport – 41.1%
- UK: Heathrow – 40.5%
- Germany: Munich International Airport – 40.4%
- Greece: Athens International Airport – 37.9%
- Australia: Sydney Airport – 34.2%
- US: Orlando International Airport – 33.4%
Topping the list of shame is Toronto, with over half of all flights leaving late – 52.5%! This is a shocking performance, and when one sees the images that have appeared in the news in the past months, it is easy to imagine how these delays are going, given the endless lines at check-in, security and immigration.
But other airports are not far behind. Frankfurt Airport became another national stain for German efficiency with 45.4%, followed by Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport with 43.2%.
Yes – Toronto and Frankfurt managed to get past the worst airport in the world in terms of delays and chaos, congratulations.
The situation has not improved much in the remainder of the summer as European airports suffer understaffing on all fronts. Heathrow and Amsterdam imposed restrictions and forced airlines to reduce flights.
Amsterdam is also battling technical issues with its baggage delivery and distribution system. Frankfurt has given in and is so low as to demand that passengers stop traveling with black suitcases as they get lost in the throngs of abandoned bags.
Crazy: Frankfurt Airport is asking passengers not to check in more black suitcases
It’s hard to see an end to this any time soon. Perhaps if we’re lucky, by the end of summer when peak travel demand drops a bit. Until then, a lot of patience as well as some wisdom is required when it comes to dealing with travel interruptions.
Infrastructure doesn’t have much potential for improvement unless there are enough people to support it, and instead of sending an email of apology pouring in en masse every day, maybe it’s time for some personal responsibility and accountability on the part of those CEOs who have caused this mess! ?
Airport delays have been rampant this year, and the statistics aren’t good at all for the worst package airports, some of which feature nearly half of their flights rated as delays.
Most of these problems are homegrown as a lot of staff were laid off during the pandemic, and airports are now struggling to hire staff who are allowed to work in safe areas, which usually requires a background check that can take a long time. accomplishment.
However, responsible management and politicians want to blame everyone else, from travelers who are “no longer used to traveling and slowing down the process” to airlines that have been accused of selling too many tickets. I’m sure airports still charge full departure and handling fees, so why not the airline doing what’s right for its business?
