Further to Mabrian’s recent analysis on the top 10 airlines by cancellations for European flights, the travel intelligence provider has now carried out a study to examine European flight cancellations by country.
The data compares the number of flights scheduled on June 14 to fly between 1 and 15 July, with flights scheduled as of July 5 and ranks them according to the origin country by the number of flights cancelled -as well as indicating the percentage of flights cancelled Vs the overall flights that destination had scheduled originally.
Carlos Cendra, Director of Sales & Marketing at Mabrian comments: “Once again we see that whilst the absolute number are high, in overall terms as a percentage of all flights scheduled the impact isn’t quite as worrying. For example Spain is at the bottom of the percentage ranking, with a rate is close to only 1%. The biggest impact however is in Germany at 6%, so whilst that means 19 out of 20 flights remain scheduled we shouldn’t forget that German connectivity has been slower than most in recovering to 2019 levels so this could slow the recovery further. Nonetheless, in general across Europe airlines are finding people alternative flights in many cases, so the number of people having to cancel plans is probably really quite low”.
