EasyJet demands compensation from airports over travel disruption

Tuesday, Jul 26, 2022 0

EasyJet says recent flight disruptions cost it £133 million in the last quarter.

Now it wants airports to foot the bill.

The airline wants to be compensated by airports for capping flights over acute staff shortages

CEO Johan Lundgren didn’t say how much it is seeking but is ‘clearly something that we will be discussing.’

It pushed easyJet to a £114 million loss in the three months to June.

After making big cuts it has now ‘normalised’ flight schedules, the airline said.

“We have taken action to build the additional resilience needed this summer and the operation has now normalised,” Lundgren said in an earnings call.

Consumer group Which? reported the budget airline to the Civil Aviation Authority, seeking enforcement action against ‘appalling’ treatment of passengers by ‘routinely ignoring its legal obligations ‘over cancelled flights.
