Aug 04. For the past few weeks, chaos has reigned at European airports. Delays, lost luggage, and canceled flights have become routine occurrences, with many passengers even missing their flights due to long lines. Travel analysis company, ForwardKeys, recently released a report outlining flight capacity reductions throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Europe is the epicenter for worldwide air travel chaos, and Amsterdam is its chaos capital. Looking at the rest of Europe and the world, we can see just how bad things have gotten in Amsterdam.
Travel chaos is all over the world, but Europe has lost the most seats out of any other region worldwide with a total of 9 million seats lost. The countries most affected were The Netherlands and The United Kingdom. The Netherlands experienced an 8% capacity reduction, while The United Kingdom saw a 7% reduction. Sweden and Germany followed, with reductions of 7% and 6%, respectively.
