“World’s worst” airports for business travellers

Beijing Capital International Airport places top of the list

A list of the “world’s worst airports” with the poorest records for delayed flights has been compiled by the low-cost business travel agency Lets Fly Cheaper, which is based in the US. This differs from other year-end lists because it is aimed at customers travelling primarily for business. Business travellers’ “#1 concern is getting to their next big deal on time”, which is why the agency says it focused exclusively on delays, not on airport amenities in compiling the list.
Worst airports based on delayed departures (non-US): Capital International, Beijing; Changi, Singapore; Charles De Gaulle, Paris; Madrid-Barajas; Pu Dong, Shanghai. Worst airports based on delayed departures (US): Dallas/Ft. Worth International; O’Hare, Chicago; Hartsfield-Jackson, Atlanta; Denver International; George Bush Intercontinental, Houston.
Beijing Capital International Airport is the busiest airport in Asia and the second busiest in the world. It had 12,864 Delayed Flights during December 2011. The airport hosts over 73 million passengers annually with more than 70 airlines flying to more than 200 cities worldwide.
