The Government has just launched a 22 point plan to deal with disruption in the aviation industry.

Transport secretary Grant Shapps said: “Holidaymakers deserve certainty ahead of their first summer getaways free of travel restrictions.

“While it’s never going to be possible to avoid every single delay or cancellation, we’ve been working closely with airports and airlines to make sure they are running realistic schedules.

“It’s now on airports and airlines to commit to running the flights they’ve promised or cancel them with plenty of time to spare so we can avoid the kind of scenes we saw at Easter and half term.

“With 100 days having passed since we set out that restrictions would be eased, there’s simply no excuse for widespread disruption.”
