Airline cancels 900 more flights around Europe from next month

This month hundreds of flights have been cancelled by airlines in the UK like easyJet and Ryanair.

And, yet another travel company has announced cancellations in the schedule with 900 flights scrapped from next month.

Lufthansa stated that the affected journeys will be on Fridays and weekends to destinations around Europe.

Most are short-haul flights meaning many British holidaymakers could see the impact.

The airline stated: “After a good two years of the pandemic, Lufthansa group airlines report high demand for air travel this summer."

It continued: “At present, however, the infrastructure has not yet been fully restored. The entire aviation industry, especially in Europe, is currently suffering from bottlenecks and staff shortages.

"This affects airports, ground handling services, air traffic control, and also airlines.”

Eurowings has also removed "several hundred flights" from its service.

The affected flights are those departing from Lufthana's Frankfurt and Munich hubs. The most-impacted services are those on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Passengers affected by the cancellations will be contacted and rebooked onto a different flight.

Brits have seen their holidays disrupted by cancellations all through May and into June.

Some have found themselves trapped abroad while they wait to be booked onto another flight home.

While others were told their holidays were cancelled at the boarding gate.

If your flight has been cancelled or delayed you are entitled to refunds or rebooked flights and should contact your holiday company, travel agent or the airline directly.
