Orlando Airport Ranked in Top 3 for Most Delays This Summer

Flying has been a bit difficult this summer.

Flying right now can be stressful

There have been thousands of delays and cancelations around the U.S., caused partially due to staffing issues. Some airlines have even canceled routes altogether, or are even canceling flights months in advance to try and curb last-minute cancelations. So, which airports have had the most issues? We’re about to tell you!

Now that summer is pretty much over (at least, summer travel is!), a list has been released from FlightAware showing the airports with the most delays and cancelations around the U.S., according to CNN. It uses the date from Memorial Day weekend through September 5th, 2022.

All of the airports in the United States with the highest percentages of arrival delays saw 1/4 or more of their flights delayed this summer, according to CNN. Coming in at the number 1 spot was Chicago Midway International Airport, who had 37.7% of its flights delayed.

Where to next?

In the 2nd spot was Baltimore/Washington International Airport with 32.5%, and rounding out the top 3 was Orlando International Airport with 32.2% of its flights delayed.

Kennedy International Airport with 31%, in 5th place was Harry Reid International Airport with 31%, in 6th was Newark Liberty International Airport with 30.4%, in 7th was Dallas Love Field Airport with 29.1%, in 8th was Dallas Fort Worth International Airport with 28.3%, in 9th was Denver International Airport with 27.5%, and in 10th was Charlotte Douglas International Airport with 27.2%.

The list looked a bit different for cancelations though. Orlando International Airport did NOT make the top 10 for the airports with the most cancelations this summer.

In the top 3 for the most cancelations were number 1: Newark Liberty International Airport with 6.7% of its flights canceled, number 2: LaGuardia Airport with 6.7% of its flights canceled, and number 3: Reagan National Airport with 4.8% of its flights canceled.

Here’s what the remainder of the list looked like:

4. Raleigh-Durham International Airport: 3.7%

5. Cleveland Hopkins International Airport: 3.5%

6. Pittsburgh International Airport: 3.4%

7. Boston Logal International Airport: 3%

8. John Glenn Columbus International Airport: 3%

9. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport: 2.9%

10. Indianapolis International Airport: 2.9%

With the summer travel season coming to an end, things should be looking up. In fact, Labor Day weekend already saw some improvements — the flight cancelation rate was only 0.6%, which was a big drop down from the summer average, which was 2.2%.
