Best: No. 1 Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC)
Flights Delayed: 11.7%
The Utah hub has reached the pinnacle of punctuality four times since 2008, and with good reason: your odds of being delayed rise above 10 percent only for one hour before noon, and approach the 25 percent threshold for just two hours during the entire day. The only bad news: overall delays are still up by 2.5 percentage points year over year.
Best Time Window: Before noon.
Worst Time Window: 6–8 p.m.
