One of the most turbulent flights in America is out of Denver.

We don’t think anyone necessarily likes turbulence on an airplane, but some can’t handle it at all. If that’s you, here’s a flight out of Denver International Airport you should probably avoid… 

Turbli, a website that forecasts turbulence, released a new report based on 150,000 active airline routes as of December 2023.

A trip to and from Denver and Mexico was third on the list… 

Rank Route Distance (km) Average turbulence (edr)
1 Nashville (BNA) – Raleigh/Durham (RDU) 711 14.728
2 Charlotte (CLT) – Pittsburgh (PIT) 589 14.582
3 Denver (DEN) – Puerto Vallarta (PVR) 2127 14.535
4 New York (JFK) – Raleigh/Durham (RDU) 686 14.517
5 Warwick (PVD) – Syracuse (SYR) 414 14.494
6 Atlanta (ATL) – Dulles (IAD) 859 14.492
7 Pittsburgh (PIT) – Raleigh/Durham (RDU) 527 14.478
8 New York (LGA) – Portland (PWM) 433 14.457
9 Boston (BOS) – Syracuse (SYR) 425 14.453
10 Boston (BOS) – Philadelphia (PHL) 450 14.453

Nonstop flights on the route last about two hours and 25 minutes, but there’s no word on which part of the flight is bumpy part… Hopefully not the whole thing!
