Why is Average Annual Aircraft Delay Compared to Scheduled Departure Time at MSP Important?

Delays at airports cost airlines and passengers both time and money. Annual delay often occurs when demand exceeds capacity and is an indicator of the adequacy of the facilities at MSP. Delays can also be caused by other factors like weather and construction projects. Delay can be reduced by airport and capacity improvements like the NextGen Air Traffic Management System. An increase in air traffic will increase delay and can be considered an indicator of increased demand for air service and a growing economy.
