Why are so many flights cancelled?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

Flights are often cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather, maintenance issues, or air traffic control restrictions. In some cases, a flight will be cancelled due to lack of demand, eliminating the need for additional aircraft to meet the decreased need. In other cases, the cancellation could be related to crew availability, the availability of required spare parts, or congested airspace. Poor visibility, high winds, and snow can also contribute to flight cancellations due to safety concerns.
