We all love heading off on holiday, but what's often not quite as fun? The airport bit.

We've all been there: screaming kids, delays, and long queues galore.

So you might be pleased to know that there's actually a day in the week to travel that is statistically the least stressful: Wednesday.

Research carried out by HappyOrNot and travel site Holiday Pirates revealed that Wednesday is the best time to fly if you're looking for the most stress-free travel experience possible.

The information was found during a study into what causes air rage.

According to the Mirror, based on 52,000,000 data points from smiley feedback terminals at over 250 airports, it was found that 76.7 per cent of travellers felt happiest on Wednesday.

And it went further to suggest that a morning flight was the best, with 7am being the happiest time to travel.

Want to know what gets our goat the most? Airport security. A study carried out on British travellers last year by Holiday Pirates found that 66 per cent of holidaymakers found security to be the worst airport experience.

But it's all worth it in the end... And we're already planning our winter sun escape. What about you?
