This certainly won’t come as welcome news to pandemic-weary Canadians looking to reach various air destinations around the world.
Based on data collected by tracking service FlightAware, it turns out a number of Canadian airlines and airports were among the worst in the world regarding flight delays during the recent Long Weekend.
Air Canada topped the dubious list for delays on both Saturday and Sunday with about two-thirds of its scheduled flights took off late.
Jazz Aviation, a Halifax-based regional service for Air Canada and budget-conscious Air Canada Rouge both saw just over 50% of their scheduled flights delayed.
Toronto’s Pearson Airport had the second most airport delays worldwide, topped only by an inefficient weekend in Guangzhou’s main airport in China.
DeGaulle Airport in Paris and Germany’s Frankfurt Airport also fared poorly in the recent statistical data.
