New York State Is Home To The 2 Airports With The Most Cancellations
The German-based company, AirHelp, conducted a study about airline delays and which airports in the United States are the worst.
We make claiming compensation straightforward for all passengers who are unsure of their rights, lack the time, or lack the expertise to embark on the claims process themselves. We stand up to airlines in court, and we campaign for national governments to introduce fair air travel rights. We’ve helped countless more through our fight for justice.
According to Forbes, AirHelp studied 37,000 cancellations from May 27 to July 15, 2022, at 400 U.S. airports to create the list of airports with the most cancellations.
The 2 New York-area airports that topped the list of all airports in America are:
2. Newark Liberty International in New Jersey - 7.6%
1. LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York - 7.7%
An AirHelp spokesperson said,
Cancellations can happen for a variety of reasons, but in general we often see a higher concentration of cancellations and flight disruptions at airports that are higher in traffic, which is true for airports in the New York area.
