British Airways cancels over 100 flights to major holiday destinations – full list


British Airways has cancelled both domestic and international flights for passengers. Airlines have been hit by staff shortages.

Many of the issues are caused by staff shortages in crucial areas such as cabin crew and airport security.

Paul Charles, CEO of the PC Agency, told Express.co.uk: “I’m afraid that some of these issues will continue into July as it’s taking a long time for airports and airlines to recruity the required number of people. 

“Shortages of staff are creating bottlenecks in security channels at airports as well as leading to flight cancellations due to lack of flight crew. 

“Slow Government processing of mandatory security passes, for new starters, is adding to the delays in getting enough resources in the right areas. All of this is compounded by there simply being fewer people available to recruit. 

“There has been a shrinking of the workforce, either put off by wages being too low or attracted by higher-paying jobs in Europe, giving people no incentive to come to the UK.”
