Lisbon’s Airport Is Not the Worst in Europe As Far As Delays

It’s only the sixth worst. Phewee! Safe travels.

Lisbon continues making Top-10 lists, this time ending in the No. 6 spot for the worst airport in Europe for delayed flights.

But it’s not far off from the No. 1 spot, currently proudly held by Brussels airport thanks to 72% of its flights being delayed in July and 2.5% getting canceled outright.

In Lisbon Airport, 65% of July flights have been delayed and 4.8% canceled, according to Hopper, the flight search app that tapped the Official Airline Guide (OAG) for its numbers. 

Also making the worst-of list, in case you’re figuring out alternatives, are Frankfurt International, Eindhoven, Luton, Liszt Ferenc, Charles De Gaulle, Schiphol, Cote D’Azur, and Gatwick.

The best on-time performance in July was in Italy’s Bergamo airport, where only 3% of flights got delayed and 1% got canceled, followed by Gran Canaria, where 8% were delayed and just 0.3% got canceled.

Abandoned Portugal: Hotel Monte Palace in the Açores

The hotel Monte Palace in the Açores shut its doors in 1986 and has since been looted and abandoned, with a 5-star view of the Lagoa das Sete Cidades and encroaching mounds of moss and hydrangea bushes on all sides. But this isn’t the end of the story.

Palácio do Marquês de Pombal in Oeiras

The title Marquês de Pombal is more or less the same as Prime Minister, so it’s no wonder that this guy needed a snazzy palace to call his own whilst in office.
