Budget airline cancels dozens of flights a day

RyanAir is Canceling Hundreds of Flights Right Now

Kiely cited air traffic control (ATC) delays and strikes, weather disruption during the summer, and a backlog of crew leave before the end of the year as reasons for the decision.

In a statement clarifying the issue a Ryanair spokesperson said: "We have operated a record schedule and traffic numbers during the peak summer months of July and August but must now allocate annual leave to pilots and cabin crew in September and October while still running the bulk of our summer schedule".

And the Commission for Aviation Regulation says it wants all passengers affected to be aware of their rights.

If you know in advance that you haven't got the pilots, then maybe you shouldn't sell airline ticktets for flights that are never going to take off?

Ryanair says it only affects two per cent of its schedule.

That compensation can be reduced by 50 per cent if the airline manages to reroute the passenger and get them to the original destination within two hours for short flights, three hours for longer European Union flights and four hours for those flights outside the European Union longer than 3,500km.

The news comes as a Norwegian newspaper reported that this year 140 pilots have left the Ryanair for low-priced rival Norwegian.

If the airline cancels 40 flights per day for six weeks at a load factor of 90 percent, approximately 285,000 journeys would be affected.

Ryanair apologised for the inconvenience caused to customers by these cancellations.

"Customers will be contacted directly about this small number of cancellations and offered alternative flights or full refunds".

Ryanair has assured passengers they will be offered a choice of refund or rerouting if their flight is cancelled.

Flights between Dinard airport and Stansted, Dublin and Paris Beauvais, and Stansted and Nice are among the 80 flights affected on Saturday, September 16.

Ryanair has told customers flights are operating as scheduled unless they receive emails saying otherwise. Compensation may also be payable depending on the notice period Ryanair has given. The disruptions to its flights schedule will affect thousands of travellers, including some who are overseas and are expecting to return home with the airline. "Release a list now of all the flights you plan to cancel so your paying customers can make alternative arrangements!"

Flights are working as common for clients who haven't gotten messaged correspondence from the bearer, Europe's greatest markdown carrier said in a refresh Saturday.
