Original Message (Business Insider) Airline delays and disruptions amid the current post-pandemic travel surge could last for as long as another 18 months, according to the CEO of one of Europe's busiest airport.

"This is not going to be a quick fix," Heathrow Airport CEO John Holland-Kaye told Bloomberg's Christopher Jasper in a report published Tuesday.

Holland-Kaye told the outlet that airlines still need to hire more staff to handle the swell in travel demand and that the daily passenger limit imposed by Heathrow could stick around until next summer.

"It's absolutely possible that we could have another summer with a cap still in place. It's going to take 12 to 18 months, and not just at Heathrow," Holland-Kaye said, per Bloomberg.

A deluge of flight cancellations, lost luggage incidents, and disruptions have become a global nightmare for an aviation industry still recovering from waves of pandemic layoffs.
