No one likes a flight delay – and luckily for us, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is among the most punctual in the world.
That's according to UK travel analysts OAG, who released their 2016 punctuality report for airlines and airports earlier this month.
MSP Airport ranked No. 5 out of all major airports in the world for how often flights are on time, with the report finding 84.46 percent of flights at the Twin Cities airport arrive or depart within 15 minutes of their scheduled time.
The airport's high ranking is thanks in part to Delta, the largest carrier at MSP. The fact that Delta – which operated the second-largest number of flights out of any airline in 2016 – came in at No. 15 for timeliness is "commendable," OAG said, and that 84.29 percent of its flights were on time is a "remarkable achievement."
Four of Delta's main hubs all cracked the top 10 in the punctuality report: Detroit came in at No. 3, and was the most timely airport in the U.S; Atlanta ranked No. 4, followed by MSP at No. 5 and Seattle at No. 6.
Southwest Airlines, which is the second-largest carrier at MSP, had an on-time performance percentage of 81.04, while Sun County Airlines, which is based in Minnesota and is the airport's third-largest carrier, had an on-time percentage of 79.14.
The U.S. Department of Transportation also keeps track of on-time performance. You can look through those statistics, including which routes are delayed and canceled the most, here.
