Lets Fly Cheaper announces its Best/Worst U.S. Airports for Business Travelers List based on traveler ratings.

San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2014

Denvers a mile high in traveler esteem and Miamis underwater, according the latest Best and Worst U.S. Airports for the Business Traveler list compiled by low fares business travel specialist Lets Fly Cheaper (LFC). LFC has recently released its list of the 10 busiest domestic airports using flyer ratings for the airports overall and delayed flights, as well as specific services/amenities of particular interest to business class travelers: lounges, business centers, airport website (information and tools), Internet connectivity and Wi-Fi access. In a tradition started in 2012, LFC periodically compiles best/worst lists of airports and airlines for the business travelers.

The winner for best airport is Denver International, with an overall rating of 4.0 out of 5 and an on-time rating of 3.9. Denver, fifth out of 10 in passenger volume, also earns high scores across the five business traveler categories, including a 4.0 for its website and a 3.9 for business centers. Charlotte Douglas (NC) and Dallas/Fort Worth come in at second and third among the nations best airports.

Although it is the 10th of the 10 busiest airports, Miami ranks worst with its travelers. Miami scores a paltry 2.3 overall and a 2.6 in on-time flights. Only Chicago OHare has a worse on-time rating (2.3), but its overall airport rating is 3.0; higher than Miami (2.3), LAX (2.4) and New Yorks JFK (2.9). Miami scores 2.6 consistently across all business traveler measures. Los Angeles also fares poorly in business traveler rankings and receives a 2.4 total rating from travelers, despite a relatively good on-time rating of 3.0.

There are myriad ways to evaluate an airport, said Ramon van Meer of Lets Fly Cheaper. We serve business class travelers, thus our best and worst lists look at airports from the perspective of the business traveler. Amenities within the airport are essential to these travelers. Delayed flights can be devastating to their business trip. To the extent we can steer business travelers to airports that will best provide for their needs, were going to do that.

The Lets Fly Cheapers Best/Worst U.S. Airports for Business Travelers list is based on statistics from flightstats.com and airport passenger/movement volume rankings from Airports Council International.
