LUFTHANSA has stepped up the pressure on European regulators to sort out mounting air-traffic delays.
The airline is demanding the European Commission reorganise air space to allow more flights and make Eurocontrol responsible for member countries’ air-traffic control.
Lufthansa said it spent 11,200 hours last year waiting to land at German airports – the longest amount of time for four years. This year, 44% of the airline’s delays were due to congestion in European skies.
Last week the European Regions’ Airline Association warned of increasing delays (Travel Weekly August 2).
