DETROIT— Out of the 75 busiest airports in the U.S., Detroit Metro Airport ranks the 23rd best in the nation when it comes to on-time performance, with just less than one percent (.98%) of all flights being canceled for all of 2018. The new ranking comes from InsureMyTrip.
The data included newly updated information on cancellations for all US airports last year by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. As for other airports, Salt Lake City had the best record. New York’s LaGuardia had the worst track record, winter storms a factor, forcing many flights to call it quits last winter.
Looking ahead, InsureMyTrip predicts the grounding of Boeing 737 Max jets will inflate cancellation rates for many airports nationwide when 2019 percentages are calculated.
