Ryanair to CANCEL forty to fifty flights a day for six weeks

Ryanair set to cancel dozens of flights a day

Ryanair announced on Friday that it would be cancelling up to 50 flights every day for the next six weeks. We have messed up in the planning of pilot holidays and we're working hard to fix that.

Passengers have been frustrated since the announcement and Ryanair have received multiple complaints over the incident.

The Irish Travel Agents Association said it is extremely concerned over the cancellation of flights at short notice and demanded the airline come clean.

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 has advised customers that flights will operate as scheduled unless passengers receive a cancellation email. We advise customers to check the email address used to make their booking. Rubbish it affects 100% of customers for the next 6 weeks worrying if their flight will be cancelled.

The airline stunned passengers by cancelling up to 2,000 flights over the next six weeks, in order to give crew some time off.


"This increased leave at a time of ATC capacity delays and strikes (in France), has severely reduced our on-time performance over the past two weeks to under 80 percent".

Ryanair's head of communications, Robin Kiely said: "We will be doing our utmost to arrange alternative flights and/or full refunds".

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

Europe's largest airline by passenger numbers sent emails to the first affected passengers on Friday, giving them the choice of a refund or an alternative flight. Compensation may also be payable depending on the notice period Ryanair has given you.

If you think you are eligible for compensation from your cancelled flight, you can fill in the online form on Ryanair's website.

Compensation rules in the European Union for flights that are cancelled include; assistance as well as compensation if the disruption had been within the control of the airline; airlines must offer passenger full refunds within seven days or rebooking's for flights that are cancelled at the last minute.
