European airports are struggling to handle traffic due to understaffing following the corona pandemic. At Heathrow in London, restrictions have been introduced on ticket sales until the situation is more manageable.
Many holidaymakers have had to endure long queues and cancellations. Here in the Nordic region, the pilot strike in SAS also creates further problems for travelers.

Data analysis as Hopper Inc. has received from Official Aviation Guide, shows that neither Heathrow nor Oslo Airport Gardermoen is the worst in Europe. The dubious credit is currently due to Brussels, where 72 per cent of departures are delayed and 2.5 per cent are canceled.
Frankfurt is also no rose dance for the impatient, with 7.8 percent cancellations and 68 percent delays.
The airport in Italian Bergamo is the best, with only three percent delays and one percent cancellations. The airport in Gran Canaria is second best, with eight percent delays.
From the list of Hopper Inc. We also see that 24 percent delays, which Malaga experiences, are good enough for a tenth place among European airports with the fewest delays.
