Airlines Must be Accountable for Flight Problems: Transport Minister

Transport Minister Omar Alghabra is pushing back against taking full responsibility for Canada’s air travel crisis, saying that airlines must also be held accountable for their role in the current problems facing the air travel industry, such as luggage delays and cancelled flights.

The National Airlines Council of Canada, which represents airlines, said that carriers have already kept up their end of the bargain, and that delays at airports are due to workforce issues at NAV Canada, CATSA, and CBSA, not airline staffing issues. Industry experts are conflicted - some say that airlines have “shot themselves in the foot” with more capacity than they can handle while rebuilding their networks, while others say that airlines can’t be to blame for trying to make up for delays caused by government services.
