Regional airline Flybe announced cancelling dozens of Wednesday flights due to operational issues, including pilot shortage and seasonality.

Most of the cancelled flights are within the UK. Thus, passengers travelling form Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, London Southend and Southampton were among the most affected by the airline’s troubled situation.

“We are doing our best to mitigate the impact of the current situation that has arisen due to a combination of factors including seasonality, pilots’ end of leave year, Easter holidays, base restructuring and the shortage of pilots across the industry that Flybe has highlighted over recent months”, said the airline on its website.
