Airline cancels thousands of flights

If you have booked northern summer flights with budget airline easyjet then you might want to check your ticket is still valid.

Thousands of holidaymakers’ plans are up in the air after easyjet cancelled 1,700 flights with an eye on possible strikes across Europe.

The airline scrapped flights for July, August and September, most of them to and from London's Gatwick Airport, Travel Mole reported.

The carrier cited potential air traffic control issues caused by mooted strikes, as canvassed here a few days ago.

Most of the thousands of affected customers have already been re-booked onto other flights, the airline said.

Easyjet noted the "challenging conditions this summer" with rail strikes at home, airspace constraints and the planned strikes by air traffic controllers in Europe.

“We have made some pre-emptive adjustments consolidating a small number of flights at Gatwick,” the airline said.

“All customers are provided with the option to rebook or receive a refund.”

Apparently, around 180,000 flyers in total are affected.
