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.
