New delay data on major U.S. airports shows how private jets are an important business tool when traveling to or from big cities, accessing alternative airports that serve business aviation flights
New airport delay data from AirHelp shows that if you are coming or going to the big city and you absolutely have to be there and are traveling on a tight schedule, flying by commercial airlines is akin to playing Russian Roulette. The summary of the worst U.S. airport delays isn’t pretty. In the top 10, if you are traveling to or from Houston, Atlanta, Denver, Dallas and Chicago, plan on your flight being delayed about 20% of the time. Even worse, as each city is a major hub for airline connections, even if you were only planning to transit those airports, you are likely to arrive at your destination late, according to AirHelp.
