Airline Transavia will also cancel flights to and from Schiphol from next weekend due to a shortage of aircraft. A spokesperson confirms this to NH News.
It is still unclear how many flights this concerns. The passengers of canceled flights are not yet all informed. According to Transavia, everyone will be informed this afternoon.
According to Schiphol’s departure schedule, at least the flights to Nice (France) and Bari (Italy) for tomorrow morning have been cancelled.
Thousands of vacationers
Several flights to and from Eindhoven Airport have already been canceled in recent days. At the beginning of this month, Transavia also canceled dozens of scheduled flights, as a result of which approximately 8,000 people saw their holiday ruined.
A spokesman for Transavia calls the cancellation of holiday flights worthless: “There is an accumulation of work, much more than we have ever seen.”
Travelers whose flight is canceled at the last minute are entitled to financial compensation. They can then turn to a claims company.
“In the past week, more than 1,200 people have already reported to us who have experienced a problem with a Transavia flight. That is a lot,” said flight data analyst Paul Vaneker of EUClaim. In all cases, this concerns flights that have been canceled 1 to 2 days before departure.
According to Vaneker, many passengers are angry about the cancellations. “We notice that people can’t reach customer service. People call us in a panic,” he says.
According to the ANP, at least 2,000 passengers have already filed a claim because of their canceled Transavia flight.
