Mykonos — London Flight Route the Most Disrupted in Europe



The flight route from Mykonos, one of Greece’s most cosmopolitan holiday islands, to London’s Gatwick airport is Europe’s most often disrupted route, according to a report from The Daily Mail online.

According to a study by AirHelp, a flight compensation company, seventy-five percent of flights from the Greek island to the U.K.’s second busiest airport experienced either cancellations or delays of more than 15 minutes. The period under study was from January 1 to October 9, 2018.

AirHelp compiles figures from state agencies, airport databanks, flight-tracking vendors, and commercial data brokers to create an image of flight disruptions worldwide.

The second most-disrupted flight route is Lisbon to Rome’s Ciampino Airport, followed by Lisbon to Brussel’s Charleroi. The route from Gatwick to Bucharest, which experienced disruptions 71 percent of the time, ranked fourth.

The fifth most-disrupted route is Venice to London’s Luton airport, with 68 percent of travelers experiencing interrupted flights on this journey in 2018, the report concludes.
