Methodology
The 2015 Travelmath.com Airport Rankings were determined from data gathered from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. Airport data was gathered from January 1 to August 31, 2015. To determine the overall ranking, they ranked the airports in each of the six categories listed in the table. Next, they assigned an overall rank based on the sum of all categories. If more than one airport had the same overall rank, it was deemed a tie and consequently given the same rank.
 
A flight is considered delayed if its departure is 15 or more minutes past its scheduled time.
 
If a negative value is indicated for the category of “Avg. Flight Delay (mins)” that means that the airport is ahead of schedule, on average.
 
The “Cxld” abbreviation means “Cancelled”.
 
The 2015 Travelmath.com Airport Top 10 Lists graphic was created by filtering the overall rank by flight volume.
