Although international air travel has bounced back faster than expected from the pandemic, the industry is still yet to fully recover following all of the staffing shortages and surge of demands this vacation season. Airports have had exceptionally long queues this summer, with London’s Heathrow seeing luggage pile ups and even telling its airlines to stop selling summer flights. If you’re thinking of planning a trip away, it may be worth picking your departure and arrivals locations wisely, as some airports have been worse than others, as our infographic based on FlightAware data shows.
