The all-causes departure delay to air transport in Europe increased to 10.1 minutes per flight in November 2018, up from 9 minutes per flight during November 2017. This change was driven by an increase in reactionary delays (+0.7 mins/flt), en-route ATFM (0.3 mins/flt) and airline (+0.2 mins/flt). Miscellaneous delays (IATA codes 97 to 99) increased to 0.6 mins/flt.
The average delay per delayed flight on arrival increased slightly to 28 minutes per flight with the percentage of delayed flights (>=5 minutes) on arrival increasing to 36%.
Seasonal weather impacted operations strongly at London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Lisbon, Paris CDG, Paris Orly, Barcelona and Amsterdam airports. En-route ATFM capacity delays were generated in Karlsruhe, Lisbon, Canarias, Madrid, Barcelona and Prague ACCs.
