Airlines cancel flight schedule

Air traffic has been severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Finnair is now canceling 20 percent of its flights, not only because there are fewer passengers, but because so many employees are sick or in quarantine.

The airline said the majority of the canceled flights are on routes where it operates multiple daily flights, but changes are also being made on long-haul flights.

For example, the flight to Dallas will not be included in the flight program until March.

Other airlines have announced similar measures.

The German Lufthansa wants to cancel 33,000 flights in view of falling bookings in the winter flight schedule.

A Lufthansa spokeswoman said that due to the development of new virus variants and the resulting travel restrictions, the situation remains very volatile, so exceptions are still necessary.

Ryanair even wants to cancel 33 percent of the flights in the winter flight schedule. Here, too, many employees are ill and the number of passengers has halved compared to before the pandemic.
