EasyJet announces cancellation of 24 flights per day starting from today
EasyJet has announced that it is to cancel a large number of flights over the next days saying it has been “necessary to provide reliable services over this busy period”.
The move by the company will be sure to infuriate travellers, and comes after a number of IT issues forced flight cancellations and travel disruption for thousands over the last week.
A spokesperson for EasyJet said:
“Over the next week we will be operating around 1700 flights per day, with around a quarter of these operating to and from Gatwick.
“We have taken the decision to make advance cancellations of around 24 Gatwick flights per day starting from today 28 May until 6 June.
“We are very sorry for the late notice of some of these cancellations and inconvenience caused for customers booked on these flights however we believe this is necessary to provide reliable services over this busy period.
“Customers are being informed in advance and provided with the option to rebook their flight or receive a refund and can apply for compensation in line with regulations.”
The Consumer Council Northern Ireland is advising the public if your flight has been cancelled, you should be offered a full refund within seven days or re-routed by the airline. You may also be entitled to compensation.
