Ryanair Will Cancel Between 40 and 50 Flights Daily

Ryanair set to cancel dozens of flights a day RyanAir is Canceling Hundreds of Flights Right Now

The Irish low-priced airline said it would scrap 40 to 50 flights daily - "less than two percent" of its flying programme - to address problems caused by air traffic control (ATC (Shenzhen: 002227.SZ - news) ) delays and strikes, weather disruption and a change in the holiday schedules of pilots and cabin crews.

Through cancelling fewer than 2% of the flights during the upcoming six months, or until the winter schedule begins, we will succeed in improving the resilience of operations for scheduling and restore the annualized target goal of punctuality of 90%, said a Ryanair spokesperson.

"Ryanair's actions will also have a considerable impact on route schedules internationally where many travellers are dependent on their Ryanair flight to connect to onward worldwide flights".

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.

Even customers who had not received a message to say their flight was cancelled vowed never to book with Ryanair again, claiming their holiday had been ruined due to the "uncertainty".

"We apologise sincerely to the small number of customers affected by these cancellations, and will be doing our utmost to arrange alternative flights and/or full refunds for them".

If you were booked on a flight that has been cancelled, you might be eligible for flight compensation too.

Ryanair has told customers flights are operating as scheduled unless they receive emails saying otherwise. Gary Cummings, who was due to fly from Leeds to Bratislava on the morning of 17 September, was told by text message the evening before that his flight had been canceled.

Sara Lace fumed: "how do people know which flights you have cancelled?"

"Passengers intending to travel today or over the weekend weren't given any warning to allow them to make alternative arrangements".

The Commission said: "Compensation may also be payable depending on the notice period Ryanair has given you".
