London Heathrow airport extended a capacity cap through the end of the summer season as the UK’s biggest hub contends with a prolonged labor shortage at ground-handling firms.

Following consultation with airlines, a daily limit of 100,000 departing passengers will now apply until Oct. 29, Heathrow said in a statement Monday.
