The Most and Least Reliable Airports and Airlines
As the holidays near, it might be time to start thinking about your next vacation -- if you haven’t already. For all those procrastinating planners, we’ve got some insights that might help you book your last-minute escape.
Air travel intelligence company OAG recently released its report on on-time performance rates of airlines and airports across the globe for October 2016. From airports big and small, take a look at this year’s best and worst airlines and airports.
Most Reliable Global Airport: Paris Beauvais-Tille
Most Reliable U.S. Airport: St. George, Utah
Least Reliable Global Airport: Nantong
Least Reliable U.S. Airport: Lebanon, N.H.
If you’re in a rush to get somewhere quickly, Lebanon Municipal Airport is not going to get you there. The New Hampshire airport has a 62.6 percent on-time departure rating and ranks number 335 of 336 North American airlines. It only had 182 October flights, so chances are slim that you’ll be stopping through there anyway.
Most Reliable Global Airline: Lufttransport AS
Most Reliable U.S. Airline: Grant Aviation Inc.
Least Reliable Global Airline: El Al Israel Airlines
Least Reliable U.S. Airline: ViaAir
It’s a close call whether your flight will be on time when flying with ViaAir. In fact, it’s almost a 50-50 shot. In October, Maitland, Fla.’s ViaAir had 400 scheduled flights -- only 55.9 percent arrived on-time. On the bright side, at least none of its October flights were canceled.
