What can cause flight delays?

Last updated on April 24, 2023

Flight delays can be caused by inclement weather, air traffic congestion, late-arriving aircraft, technical issues with an aircraft, lack of crew, and long security lines. For international flights, passport control delays and long customs lines can also cause significant delays. Depending on the airline and airports, aircraft maintenance, animal strikes, and limited ramp space can also add substantial time to the expected flight duration.
