Ryanair has just announced that they will be cancelling more than 2,000 flights between now and the end of October.
The reason given for such a dramatic move… to “improve punctuality”!
Seriously – in case you think I’m having a bit of fun on a Friday night, you can see the image below and go and have a read of the full statement yourself here.
The 2000 flights correspond to between 40-50 daily flights over the next 6 weeks. The stated reason is that punctuality has fallen below 80%. This comes after Ryanair recently announced that they would significantly change their baggage rules and prices to ensure timely departure.
Ryanair says that customers affected by the canceled flights will be contacted and offered a full refund or assistance with rebooking.
We still do not know which departures are impacted, so if you are planning to fly with Ryanair soon it would be a good idea to keep a close eye on your flights.
I almost admire the brazen cheek…
