To empower passengers to make informed decisions when booking flights, InsureMyTrip recently published research on the performance of U.S. airports and domestic flights.

InsureMyTrip analyzed the latest flight cancellation data gathered by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics as of August 22, 2022, to gain a closer look at the impact of ongoing flight disruptions, the COVID-19 pandemic, and other factors on U.S. airports.

Only 6 of the 78 airports analyzed reduced the percentage of canceled flights compared to 2021

The summary includes data from January through May of 2022. 

  • LaGuardia New York saw an increase of 4.02% more canceled flights; however, they have put on almost 50,000 more canceled flights this year.
  • Gerald R. Ford International saw almost 3% more canceled flights, despite having nearly the same number of flights in both years.
  • Oakland International managed to reduce the number of canceled flights by 2.15%.
  • Salt Lake City International put on 449 fewer flights in 2022 and only had 0.49% more canceled flights.

Separately, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration activity data on August 30, 2022, indicated that 2022 airport security screening remains about 90% compared with 2019.
