EasyJet Flight Checker: Chaos increases for passengers with 50 more cancellations today

Thousands of easyJet passengers – many of them stranded abroad – have woken up to the news that their flights have been cancelled.

The Independent has calculated that at least 60 easyJet flights will be grounded on Tuesday, adding to the hundreds canceled over the bank holiday weekend. Ahn estimates 10,000 passengers have been affected – including some still trying to get home from Mediterranean islands like Ibiza, Malta and Sicily.

Ali Haynes, her partner and their five-month-old baby arrived at Luton Airport three hours before their flight to Palermo, as requested by easyJet.

She tweeted: “Two hours before when we checked in and got through security… SMS ‘flight cancelled’.

“We are now stuck in Luton Departures with no information on how to proceed. holiday ruined.”

She told later The Independent: “Apparently nothing until Sunday. We’re so down and tired that we’re just going home.”

Ms Haynes and all other easyJet passengers on the ground are entitled to be flown to their destinations as quickly as possible, on other airlines if necessary.

Most cancellations are to and from easyJet’s main base, London Gatwick. While some were given a day or two notice, many flights were grounded with just an hour’s notice.

A difficult Monday evening follows, with flights to and from Belfast City, Ibiza, Isle of Man, Lanzarote and Montpellier being canceled at short notice.

Wizz Air has also canceled a handful of flights from Gatwick Airport to Faro, Palermo and Tenerife.

A government spokesman said: “The airline industry has a responsibility to ensure it has enough staff to meet demand and we have made it clear that it needs to step up recruitment to ensure disruptions are kept to a minimum.

“Furthermore, using our post-Brexit freedoms, we have changed the law to give the industry more flexibility in training new employees, which will help them fill vacancies faster. We have also worked with Border Force to ensure preparations meet passenger demand.”
