MILWAUKEE — A new study has revealed that Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport ranks 29th worst out of 75 when it comes to flight cancellations.

Airlines at General Mitchell canceled 1.76% of its flights in 2018, according to InsureMyTrip. These statistics came from the Bureau of Transportation.

New York's LaGuardia reports the highest percentage of canceled flights for the second year in a row. Winter Storm Grayson was a contributing factor in 2018, forcing the airport to temporarily shut down.

On the other end of the spectrum, Salt Lake City International maintains a consistent reputation for punctuality. The airport celebrates another year of low cancellations.

The study also confirms that severe weather, such as Hurricane Florence, Hurricane Michael and Winter Storm Grayson, was the cause of most cancellations in 2018.
