Why are flights getting delayed?

Last updated on April 24, 2023

Flight delays are often caused by a variety of factors, such as air traffic congestion, bad weather, aircraft mechanical issues, airport or air traffic control (ATC) staffing shortages, and prolonged security procedures. Delays can also be caused by scheduling problems, such as when airlines overbook flights, or when airlines require more time for maintenance checks than expected. In some cases, delays may be the result of unplanned operational, security, engineering and other issues.
