    The rebounding airline industry is facing growing flight cancellations as the demand for travel rises. The U.S. aviation system is expected to “remain challenged this summer and beyond,” according to a senior United Airlines executive. He explained the Federal Aviation Administration needs more air traffic control staff.

    Many travellers are already facing hurdles will increased flight cancellations as the industry tries to rebuild its staffing levels. United’s chief operations officer, Jon Roitman said “The reality is that there are just more flights scheduled industry-wide that the {air traffic control} staffing system can handle,”

    U.S. airlines have cut about 15 per cent of planned summer flights. United has temporarily halted 12 per cent of departures from its Newark, N.J., hub alone because of congestion. Over the long weekend, 8.8 million passengers were screened by U.S. Transportation Security Agency checkpoints.
