Chaos in the sky: the blow of flight cancellations at world airports
Airlines are stuck between a rock and a hard place. They and the airports have dropped the token – this is not the way to proceed. Yesterday (Monday) 61 flights were canceled at Heathrow Airport in London. They were not canceled at the initiative of the companies, but at the initiative of the airport. This is one of 18 flights that took off that day. Similar to Israel, there are heavy loads in London at the airport – where people waited more than two hours for their luggage.

A continuing blow to flight cancellations

At Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, 29 flights were canceled yesterday – one flight out of an average of 33, after deciding not to carry more than a specified number of passengers. In the last three months, 14,200 flights have been canceled at the Dutch airport. At the German airport in Frankfurt, 8,600 flights were canceled and at Heathrow in London – 8,200 flights. In Paris, at the Charles de Gaulle airport, 4,100 flights have been canceled since April.

In first place in the number of cancellations: easyJet

Airlines are also experiencing difficulties, with a huge shortage of manpower. A study examined which airline canceled the most flights to Europe in the first two weeks of July. At the top of the list is easyJet, with 1,394 canceled flights. This is 5% of all flights planned by the company. In second place is Turkish Airlines, with 399 flights canceled in total. Immediately after it is on the list Wizz, which has canceled 86 flights in the last two weeks, and United with 30 flights.
