Five airports in the United States suffer the most from flight disruptions

With spring break just around the corner, and soon after that the summer travel season, Americans with upcoming flights may be wondering if the airport they’re departing from is prone to delays and cancellations. 

AirHelp, a claims management company focusing on passenger rights, looked at data from a variety of sources, such as reports from airlines, airports and air traffic control systems, to determine which major U.S. airports had the worst flight disruptions, which are delays of at least 15 minutes or cancellations, during February 2023.

Below are the results:

  1. Kahului Airport in Hawaii (OGG): 30.82% of flights disrupted.
  2. Reno-Tahoe International Airport in Nevada (RNO): 29.15% of flights disrupted.
  3. Harry Reid International Airport in Nevada (LAS): 28.52% of flights disrupted.
  4. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas (DFW): 28.51% of flights disrupted.
  5. Logan International Airport in Massachusetts (BOS): 28.23% of flights disrupted.

Dallas was found to be home to the two airports with the most cancellations in February: Dallas Love Field, which had 4.85% of flights canceled, and Dallas/Fort Worth International, which had 4.6%.

As for the most reliable airport? McGhee Tyson Airport outside Knoxville had more than 85% of its February flights depart on time.
