Friday, 26 May, 2023 0

‘Chaos’ continues for British Airways passengers with a second day of flight cancellations after the IT outage.

British Airways cancelled at least 42 flights today due to knock-on effects.

Most are short-haul routes from and to Heathrow Airport on what is expected to be the busiest post-pandemic day for travel.

The IT glitch grounded around 80 flights yesterday.

So far, about 16,000 passengers have had their flights cancelled.

All passengers have been advised to check their flight status before leaving for the airport

“While the vast majority of our flights continue to operate, we have cancelled some of our short-haul flights from Heathrow,” BA said.

BA says most cancellations are on routes where there are multiple departures a day.
