Scenes from Lisbon airport last summer when over 600 flights had to be cancelled

More than 770,000 passengers had flights from Portugal cancelled in September

The misery of flight cancellations continues to affect airline passengers in Portugal. AirHelp reports that of the 1.9 million who left the country in September, more than 770,000 were affected by cancellations or delays. From May to August, a total of 7.4 million flew from Portugal, of which 2.8 million saw flights either cancelled or delayed. Issues persist as much of these issues are caused by strikes/ industrial action.
