Heathrow has today warned it will ask airlines to cancel more flights this summer if it doesn’t think they’ve taken enough action to reduce disruption.

In its latest business and traffic commentary, Heathrow says it will “carefully assess” airlines’ reviewed schedule changes, to see if they’ll minimise further disruption for passengers over the summer getaway.

Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye says: “We will review the schedule changes that airlines have submitted in response to the Government’s requirement to minimise disruption for passengers this summer and will ask them to take further action if necessary.

“We want everyone who is travelling through Heathrow to be confident that they will have a safe and reliable journey.”

“Airlines have been allowed to temporarily give up some of their flights in a “slot amnesty”, to help them trim their schedules to manageable levels following the chaos over Easter and half-term.

“Heathrow says it has taken on more staff — by the end of July it will have as many people working in security as before the pandemic.”
