Airports With The Highest Cancelation Rates


There are a lot of things to hate about airports and flying, but the absolute worst is having your flight canceled, and apparently that’s happening in some airports more than others. 

  • Well, InsureMyTrip has reviewed data on U.S. airports to determine the airports most prone to flight cancelations.
  • Topping the list as the airport with the highest cancelation rates is Chicago’s Midway International.
  • Cancelation spikes in 2019 were likely due to bad storms and the grounding of 737 Max jets.
  • New York’s LaGuardia airport saw a huge improvement in 2019, going from the highest percentage of cancelations, to now only the eighth highest.
  •  Salt Lake City International and Kahului Airport in Hawaii are the airports with the lowest cancelation rates.
