The Baltimore Sun

Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is ranked among the 10 worst airports in the nation for holiday travel, according to MagnifyMoney.com.

The website analyzed 10 years of Department of Transportation flight data for the 50 busiest airports in the U.S. The study looked at travel dates Dec. 20-31 from 2008 to 2017, according to the website.

About 68 percent of flights departing from BWI reached their destinations on time and 1.7 percent of flights were canceled.

According to the data, the worst travel day out of Baltimore was Dec. 27.

BWI was ranked 10th on the list of worst delays and 25th on the list for most cancellations.

Washington Dulles International Airport saw about 71.2 percent of flights reaching their destinations on time and 2.4 percent of flights canceled during the same period of time. The worst day to travel from Dulles was Dec. 21.

Hopefully your holiday travel isn’t bringing you to Chicago — its Midway and O’Hare airports were ranked worst and second-worst, respectively.
