Chaos at airports due to staff shortages in Europe and the USA
While many flights are canceled due to insufficient number of personnel at airports in countries such as Germany, England, France, Spain, the Netherlands and the USA, passengers are faced with long waiting times.
As the effects of the new type of coronavirus epidemic decrease, people start to travel again, while the lack of personnel at the airports in Europe and the USA causes chaos during the summer vacation.
The airline industry, which has experienced a sharp recovery after coming to a standstill during the epidemic, is facing staff shortages and strikes.
Airports and airlines in Europe and the US are struggling with severe staff shortages in all areas, including ground handling, security personnel and flight attendants.
Several European airlines and airports have seen strikes in recent weeks, with further travel cuts expected next month. Major airports in cities like London, Amsterdam, Rome and Frankfurt have to deal with flight cancellations and long passenger queues.
In countries where there is a shortage of personnel in the airline industry, travel is increasingly turning into "torture".
