Other Names: Transportation delays
Incidence: In 1999 in European Union, one flight in three was delayed by more than 15 minutes, while delays exceeded 25 minutes on average between the end of March and mid-July, a period of some four months. The year before such delays occurred over a 3-week period only. As much as half the delays were attributed to air traffic management. The remaining delays were due mainly to saturation at airports and the way airlines function.
