Airlines declare they are ready to avoid a repeat of summer travel chaos

 Wednesday, June 7, 2023 


Airlines on Sunday reported that they are ready to avoid a repeat of last year’s travel chaos, but warned that some flights could still be disrupted by controller strikes and hit out at schemes that force them to pay compensation for unavoidable delays.

Willie Walsh, director general of the International Air Transport Association, (IATA) expressed in an interview on Sunday that he is reasonably confident that they will be able to get through this peak summer without too much disruption.

He added that as far as they are concerned, they have fulfilled their obligation to get their resources in place for this summer. Most of the airports he thinks have learned the lessons from last year
Rising numbers of disputes between travelers and airlines globally have led to calls for passenger compensation.

Walsh also declared that the more expenses that airlines have to incur because of problems outside of their control, the more that’s going to be reflected in ticket prices, and it will drive ticket prices up. It is a very frustrating environment to be operating in.

Airlines have announced that there are strong bookings for this summer as air traffic returns towards pre – COVID levels.
