An IT glitch has caused chaos for EasyJet passengers across Europe after the budget carrier cancelled about 200 flights on Thursday and Friday.
Passengers have been stranded at airports in the UK and overseas as the airline struggles to get schedules on track after the software failure.
EasyJet originally announced that only some flights on Thursday would be affected, however the disruption has continued into Friday.
The cancellations come on one of the busiest weekends for outbound travel, as Britons make the most of the upcoming Jubilee weekend to take a week-long holiday that will only cost them three days of annual leave.
The budget carrier has apologised to customers and advised them check their bookings before going to the airport.
In a statement, the airline said: “EasyJet can confirm that the earlier IT systems issues have now been rectified.
“Unfortunately, they resulted in some cancellations earlier today and while we expect to operate most of our remaining flying programme, some may still be subject to some disruption in the coming hours.”
Can I claim compensation for my cancelled flight?
The cause of a cancellation will determine whether a passenger can claim compensation or not.
EasyJet was initially cagey about the reason, but has since admitted that its computer systems are to blame, meaning that travellers can claim compensation.
Travellers could be entitled to up to £220 in compensation, as well as seats on a new flight, depending on the length of delay and the distance of the flight.
How many cancellations are there today?
As of 3pm on Friday, EasyJet had cancelled 18 flights with a further 125 flights departing late at its main UK hub of Gatwick airport.
Destinations with cancelled flights include Turin, Rome, Pisa, Nantes, Milan, Majorca, Madrid, Jersey, Hamburg, Budapest and Bordeaux.
Luton has seen seven departures scrapped while at least nine flights from Manchester have been affected.
How can I check if my flight has been cancelled?
Easyjet is advising passengers to visit the flight tracker on their website at easyjet.com/en/flight-tracker to see the latest updates on their flight status.
Will there be more cancellations tomorrow?
It is possible that there will be more cancellations on Sunday, as the airline attempts to gain control of its scheduling, especially considering the fact that airports will be extra busy as this weekend precedes the four-day Jubilee bank holiday.
