EasyJet is cancelling more than 200 flights over the next 10 days, during the busy half-term holiday period.

The airline said about 24 flights from Gatwick will be pulled every day between Saturday 28 May and 6 June. In a statement, the carrier said the cancellations were ‘necessary to provide a reliable service’.

A spokesperson said: “We are very sorry for the late notice of some of these cancellations and inconvenience caused for customers booked on these flights, however we believe this is necessary to provide reliable services over this busy period.

“Customers are being informed from today (Friday) and provided with the option to rebook their flight or receive a refund and can apply for compensation in line with regulations.

“Over the next week we will be operating around 1,700 flights per day, with around a quarter of these operating to and from Gatwick.”

Meanwhile, Sky News reports TUI is delaying or cancelling some flights.

A spokesperson said: ” Unfortunately, due to various operational and supply chain issues a small number of flights have been delayed or cancelled.

“We’d like to reassure customers that we are doing everything we can to minimise delays and will be in direct communication should their holiday be impacted.

“We’d like to thank customers for their patience and understanding during this time.”
