Flight chaos in Europe! Thousands of canceled flights

Over the past few days, millions of travelers across Europe have had their flights canceled or delayed. This is a situation that has started to get complicated for several years, but in the last week there were delays that increased by 153%, compared to the same period in 2023.


The main causes, according to Corriere della Sera, are bad weather, staff shortages and faulty airline planning.

Half of the canceled flights worldwide over the weekend were in Europe. On June 28 alone, about 600 flights were canceled and another 8,000 were delayed.

At English and Spanish airports, departures were delayed by more than three hours. Even on July 1, around 70% of flights departed late in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris (Charles de Gaulle), London (Heathrow and Gatwick), Madrid and Barcelona.
