Newark Airport Ranks First As Worst Airport in Nation
If you are travelling for the holidays this season, you might want to factor extra time for your flight–especially if you are flying out of Newark Liberty Airport.
Newark Liberty Airport has now been bestowed the dubious honor of being named as the worst airport for delays, with nearly 25 percent of all flights arriving tardy, according to a new study.
The news isn’t much better in New York, according to the Bureau of Transportation. LaGuardia Airport in New York finished second on the list, with over 22 percent of flights delays reported. John F. Kennedy Airport didn’t rank well, either, finishing tied for 10th on the list.
Flying Allegiant Air? That airline is the most likely for delays, with 27 percent of flights departing past schedule.
