Bad weather and flight delays: The impact of sudden and slow onset weather events

Bad weather and flight delays: The impact of sudden and slow onset weather events

Weather shocks frequently impair the smooth functioning of transportation systems. We use a dataset consisting of 2.14 million flight departures from ten large U.S. airports between January 2012 and September 2017, and estimate the effects sudden onset events, i.e., precipitation...
