As the UK air travel disruption continues, airlines such as Easyjet and Wizz Air have cancelled dozens of flights.
On Sunday, Easyjet announced the cancellation of 80 flights and apologised to customers for the inconvenience.
According to Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, the aviation industry lost too many jobs during the coronavirus pandemic and must not oversell flights.
He stated that he would like airlines to automatically compensate passengers.
Passengers have faced a slew of flight cancellations in the United Kingdom, disrupting many families on half-term vacation.
Easyjet announced the cancellation of approximately 80 flights “due to the ongoing challenging operating environment.”
We are very sorry and fully understand the disruption this will have caused for our customers,” the airline said. “We are doing all possible to fly them as soon as possible to their destination.”
It said it had extended its customer service opening hours from 07:00 to 23:00, and was helping those affected find hotel accommodation.
