Why do flights get delayed?

Last updated on April 24, 2023

Flights can get delayed for a range of reasons, from bad weather to technical issue to issues with air traffic control. Inclement weather can affect visibility and air traffic control released to operate flights. If a technical issue is detected, the plane may need to remain grounded while repairs are being made. Even without any technical or weather related issues, issues like airport congestion or weight balance can delay flights.
