Flight Cancellation, Airport Chaotic Live Update: Heathrow Airport operates 30 flights to further reduce summer service by British Airways

Heathrow Airport operated 30 flights on Thursday at night as it requested the airline to shorten the schedule to ease the pressure on the terminal.

Cancellations that can affect more than 4,500 passengers primarily affect British Airways services, but also Virgin Atlantic, Lufthansa, KLM, Aer Lingus and Air France flights.

“We will work with airlines to rebook affected passengers on other off-peak flights so that as many people as possible can escape tomorrow,” said a spokesperson for Heathrow Airport.

Meanwhile, British Airways has confirmed that it will further reduce summer flights. The additional reduction means that cancellations correspond to about 11% of the planned schedule from May to October instead of 10%.

An airline representative said: “Unfortunately, the entire aviation industry continues to face the most difficult times in history and needs to be further reduced.

“We will contact you and apologize for the rebooking or full refund.”

Short-term cancellations will continue at Gatwick Airport

Hundreds of passengers wanting to travel to and from London Gatwick Airport are reorganizing their journey after another wave of flight cancellations.

EasyJet, the UK’s largest low-cost carrier, has canceled three short-term early flights: 7am service to Edinburgh, 8am to Paris CDG and 8:15 am to Bordeaux. ..

Cancellations to the French capital are due to strikes. The passenger was told: “The French authorities have informed us that the fire and rescue services at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris will participate in the industrial activity on June 30. We are sorry, but as a result of this industrial activity, your flight Was canceled.

“Your flight interruption is beyond our control and is considered an unusual situation.”

Due to the strike, the airline will not pay cancellation compensation for changes to this flight, but no other reason is given. This indicates that a charge of £ 220 per person must be made.

EasyJet’s little rival, Wizz Air, also left for Malaga at 6:15 am.
