Cancelled flights and airport delays are increasing anxiety among UK holidaymakers ahead of the peak summer season, according to travel agents.
According to Advantage Travel Partnership, a network of travel agents, 30% of calls to its members were from people concerned about future bookings.
Thousands of people are believed to be stranded abroad due to flight cancellations over the Jubilee weekend.
Staff shortages in the aviation industry are causing the disruption.
The issues are taking time to resolve, and Advantage’s CEO warned that there were “no guarantees” that the situation would be better by the summer.
“Thirty per cent of everything my members are dealing with right now are calls from very anxious holidaymakers who have bookings, whose travel plans, as far as we know right now, will take place, but they are anxious because obviously they’re hearing all [about] the disruption,” said Julia Lo Bue-Said.
