Two London airports in the worst European flight hubs for delays this month

  • Two in five (41%) of London Gatwick outgoing flights are delayed and nearly 1 in 3 (28%) of planes from London Heathrow have arrived late. 
  • Almost half (49%) of flights from Frankfurt were delayed - the highest figures across the whole of Europe.
  • Travel expert shares tips for navigating and keeping stress low during this turbulent summer holiday season.

London Gatwick has seen the second-highest number of delays across the whole of Europe, with over two in five outgoing flights arriving late (41%) at the beginning of August, according to data analysed by flights comparison site, FlightsFinder.

The capital also took another seat on the delays list with London Heathrow being the sixth worst on the continent as a result of almost 1 in 3 (28%) of its outward planes being held up. 

Taking the top spot overall though is Frankfurt International Airport, with a whopping half (49%) of flights delayed. 

39% of flights were delayed at Charles de Gaulle/Roissy CDG, positioning it in third place, closely followed by Paris Orly in fourth place with 38% delayed and Istanbul Airport in fifth with 33%.

Making up the eight European airports experiencing the most delays at the start of this month are Vienna Int'l and Pรดle Caraรฏbes (PTP), both with 26% of flights delayed.

European airports aren’t the only ones tackling difficulties at the moment though. An average of 30,000 global flights are delayed every single day Forbes reveals - a staggering number considering that this is almost a third of the estimated 100,000 flights each day worldwide.

In fact, flight delays have soared to a 10-year high in 2023 according to Flight Aware.

ADP Group company Hub One, gets 10 year licence to operate 4 &5G mobile network covering Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget airports.

Arcep, France’s electronic communications, postal and print media distribution regulatory authority, has granted a 10-year 4G/5G license to ADP Group company Hub One, in order to launch a high-speed private mobile network covering Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget airports.

Air France, which is also involved in developing this future 4G/5G network, will thus become the first airline to use this innovative solution. 

This unprecedented partnership between Air France, Hub One and the ADP Group alongside an operational network scheduled to enter into force in 2020 will ensure optimal use of the bandwidth granted by Arcep, taking into account each operator’s specific requirements.
