British Airways axes 10,300 short-haul flights from August till end of October | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “British Airways axes 10,300 short-haul flights from August till end of October | ITV News” – below is their description.

British Airways has announced that it will be cutting 10,300 short-haul flights before the end of October.

The move comes just a day after the airline had announced that it would be axing almost 1,000 flights scheduled to take off in July, disrupting holiday plans for more than 100,000 passengers.

In a statement over cuts, bosses at the airline said that it could only “apologise” as it cancels thousands of flights over the next few months.

The airline has been amongst the worst hit by post-pandemic staff shortages, which have lead to crippling disruption and significant anger among holiday makers.

This latest round of cuts represents around 13% of the firms’ planned flight schedule over the coming months, and currently doesn’t include slashes to long-haul journeys.
