Scandinavian airline SAS cancelled 25 flights on Friday last week and plans to cancel a further 40 flights this week.
There are several reasons for the cancellations, ranging from delays in deliveries of new Airbus aircraft to air traffic control challenges and a lack of capacity to handle the increase in summer traffic, according to SAS CEO Rickard Gustafson, who deeply regrets the situation.
The Airhelp website says more than 11,000 passengers at Swedish airports have been affected so far and that SAS can expect to receive compensation claims of some EUR 32 million
