Most disrupted flight route of 2018

Mykonos to London Gatwick was the most interrupted flight route in Europe in 2018.

AirHelp have ranked the top 50 most disrupted flight routes over the continent in the past year and the route from the Greek island to London's capital has topped the list with over 75 per cent of all flights disrupted in one way or another, followed closely behind by Lisbon to Rome Ciampino and Lisbon to Brussel Charleroi with 74.26 and 73.99 per cent respectively.

And if you're looking to avoid a delay, your best bet is to travel on a Tuesday, with 78 per cent of all flights leaving on a Tuesday arriving at their destination on time. It is Sunday travellers which suffer the most disruptions - with 29 per cent of flights delayed or cancelled.

Paloma Salmeron, air passenger rights expert at AirHelp, said: "This year, we've seen the worst European flight disruptions on record. UK air passengers have suffered an unprecedented level of flight disruptions this year, with over 186,000 departing flights delayed or cancelled to date in 2018 - that's over 27,000 more UK flights affected than last year. With a growing number of delayed and cancelled flights, European air passengers are enduring a rising tide of travel misery. Although it's not always possible to avoid travel disruption, we urge affected passengers to check whether they are entitled to financial compensation. With 86 per cent of UK air travellers unaware of their air passenger rights, many are missing out on the compensation to which they are entitled by not filing a claim."
