Analysis from the BBC has revealed that Gatwick is the airport where you can expect to find the greatest delays when going on holiday.
Figures from the Civil Aviation Authority showed that flights from the London airport were 27 minutes late on average, with Easyjet being the worst airline for delays.
On average, the budget airline suffered delays on 24 minutes.
Both Gatwick and Easyjet blamed the fact they operate mainly to European destinations as being a major factor, and said many of the delays were caused by factors beyond their control.
These include the congested airspace across Europe, bad weather conditions and strikes from air traffic controllers in the likes of France and Spain.
By contrast, Aer Lingus delays were half those of Easyjet, with Leeds Bradford and Belfast City the best performing airports with average delays of ten minutes per flight.
