Gatwick Airport also experiences frequent delays, so it’s worth checking the status of your flight before you travel.

Why has easyJet canceled so many flights?

The low-cost airline said the mid-term cancellations were “necessary to provide reliable services at this busy time”.

The 200 canceled flights on Thursday (May 26) were due to an error in their IT systems.

However, travel expert Simon Calder told Northern Ireland’s Good Morning Ulster program earlier this week that easyJet was “in a real old mess of not having enough staff for the flights it needs to operate this summer”.

What has easyJet said about the cancellations and delays?

EasyJet has apologized for the cancellation of several flights, saying it was “necessary to provide reliable services at this busy time”.

A company spokeswoman said in a statement: “We have made the decision to cancel around 24 Gatwick flights per day in advance from tomorrow 28 May through 6 June.

“We regret the delay in notifying some of these cancellations and the inconvenience caused to customers who booked these flights, but we believe this is necessary to provide reliable services at this busy time.

“Customers will be informed from today (Friday) and will have the option to rebook their flight or receive a refund and can request compensation in accordance with regulations.”

“Over the next week we will operate around 1,700 flights a day, around a quarter of which will be to and from Gatwick.”

What cancellations are there at other UK airports?

There are currently very few easyJet cancellations at other airports.

However, there are numerous delays on flights departing from Bristol, Luton, Liverpool, Manchester and Edinburgh.

An easyJet flight from Belfast – to Dalaman – has been canceled while there too are experiencing multiple delays.

Also today (28 May) four British Airways flights were canceled at London Heathrow. They are; Kuala Lumpur, Dublin, Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas and Barcelona.

What did passengers say?

Devan Lonsdale, 24, from Durham, was due to travel from Manchester Airport with eight friends for a holiday that had already been canceled due to Covid.

He said: “We left Newcastle at 6am and arrived at the airport at 10am as our flight was at 1.20pm.

“We were called to the gate at 12.35pm and the gate was supposed to close at 12.50pm but by 1pm it had not moved.

“People started leaving one by one to be told the flight was canceled and there was no replacement, so we were stuck in Manchester.

“We had to pay for hotel etc in Manchester and will now be returning home tomorrow – (we) have been looking for alternative flights to Prague and other places at a reasonable price so we can use our days off from work but have used nothing but flights via Found £500 with multiple stops.

“Only time will tell what easyJet will say and how much money we will get, but we will undoubtedly lose money and a four-day holiday overall.”

Rosaleen Gormley from Belfast was waiting at Bristol Airport for her flight home.

She told Stephen Nolan on BBC Radio Ulster: “Suddenly at 7.53am we got a text message that the flight was cancelled.”

The message urged passengers to book a hotel through the app, but Ms Gormley said it kept crashing and ground staff were no help.

She added: “We were told you have to leave the building and we were herded out like animals with nowhere to go.”

She found a place to stay and flew back to Belfast on Monday morning.

A passenger on the midday departure for Venice told The Independent: “No easyJet staff to assist at Gatwick.

“No [easyJet] flights available. I just paid £280 each with Wizz Air.”

What happens if your flight is cancelled?

An airline that cancels a flight must offer an alternative departure on the same day if one is available – even if it means buying a ticket from a competing airline.

Passengers are also entitled to compensation of £220 or £350 depending on flight duration.
