British Airways is scrapping another 10,300 flights through the summer season as it grapples with a staffing crisis that’s unleashed chaotic scenes across Europe’s aviation sector.

With the latest round of cancellations, which follow others earlier this week, the unit of IAG SA will have pared about 13% of its schedule from April through October, it said Wednesday. Only short-haul routes are affected.
