Over 30 Aer Lingus flights at Dublin Airport are set to be cancelled both today and tomorrow as airports across Europe continue to face delays due to staff shortages.

Aer Lingus released a statement today to say, 21 of their flights would be cancelled today at Dublin Airport.

The airline says it includes nine return flights and one direct flight to a number of areas in Europe, such as London, Munich, Amsterdam and Brussels.

Of the flights cancelled today, 19 are as a result of staff related absences due to Covid.

Despite the cancellations, security at Dublin Airport is currently moving well with a current wait time of around five minutes.

Pressure within the sector is being felt globally as the peak holiday season is in full swing.

Of the flights cancelled today and tomorrow, six are related ongoing industrial action in France.

At present, it’s expected an additional 12 Aer Lingus flights will not be able to go ahead on Saturday.
