We all worry about bad weather flight delays in the winter, we even come to expect them in a country like Canada where climates are more wild than mild. Come summer, if you expect delays to go away, you’d be wrong. Data compiled by QMI Agency showed that during June and July roughly 78 per cent of flights on Canada’s three major carriers arrived on time. Compare this to the US where an estimated 76.6 per cent of flights within that country are on time, and we’re only slightly ahead.

In Canada, flights from Toronto to the East Coast look to be the most frequently delayed of all routes. You can read more on individual air carriers on-time estimates and what the impact of delayed flights on the economy, here.
