Transavia, a popular holiday flyer, is facing challenges in guaranteeing flights during the upcoming Dutch May holiday period. Due to plane shortage, some flights have already been cancelled, and passengers have been advised to be prepared for the possibility of last-minute cancellations.

“It’s the airline’s legal duty to provide financial compensation in such circumstances and we [] are here to help passengers receive what they're entitled to.”, comments’s CEO Tom van Bokhoven.

Why is Transavia cancelling May holiday flights?

According to a spokesperson for Transavia, the company was already operating at maximum capacity, and any disruption to their schedule has a domino effect on all flights.

The airline is also struggling with a shortage of aircraft equipment, which is causing issues with their flight schedule. Amongst the issues, we could for instance mention the fact that Transavia has faced difficulties in getting parts from Boeing, which is currently grounded two of their planes.

Moreover, Transavia was expecting to receive 5 planes from the Romanian airline Blue Air, which has recently gone bankrupt. However, because getting them ready is taking more time than Transavia expected, only 2 out of the 5 aircrafts are actually ready to fly.
