America's Best and Worst Airports for Flight Delays
Best: No. 9 Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)
Flights Delayed: 17.1%
A high traffic volume didn’t deter CLT’s efficiency. Despite more than 243,000 domestic departures from July 2013 to June 2014—the most of any of the 10 least-delayed airports—it made the top 10 airports for punctual departures. It helps that nearly 60 percent of the airport’s passengers travel on US Airways, which earned a No. 5 ranking among the best on-time airlines.
Best Time Window: Before noon.
Worst Time Window: 5–6 p.m.
