The current chaos at the country’s airports is nothing new: the basic problem is staff shortages. “Before the pandemic, we already had a shortage of staff, I’m talking about pilots and flight attendants,” Mehran Ibrahimi, director of the Aeronautics and Civil Aviation Observatory, broadcast on LCN.

“When we plan flights without considering the reality of crew availability, we exceed our ability to provide these flights,” the expert noted. “From then on, you have to balance the situation and reducing the number of flights that companies offer is very much within reach.”

Depending on a number of variables, the busiest times of the year are likely to result in more flight cancellations.

For example, “Will other customs officials arrive?” It depends on many questions like Do airlines have the ability to hire people or not?
