Belfast Airport To Be Affected By Ryanair Cancellations

Ryanair has been accused by the UK's aviation regulator of "not complying with the law" over its handling of flight cancellations.

One Irish route is affected by the new cancellations as flights scheduled from London Gatwick to Belfast are suspended for the winter season.

The CAA is launching enforcement action against Ryanair for failing to give customers accurate information about their rights.

Ryanair had previously said that it would tackle the staff shortages by compelling some pilots to postpone leave and by offering cash incentives to work additional days.

Last evening, Ryanair had announced that it would be suspending 34 routes, including all flights from London to Scotland, all through November to March 2018 as it aims to bring an end to its flight cancellation troubles.

Britain's newspapers summed up the anger among travelers, with the Daily Mail's front page headline reading "Now Ryanair cancels Xmas", and the Daily Mirror adding "Now Ryanair ruins hols for 400,000 more passengers". As a result, it had to allocate annual leave to pilots in September and October.

The airline has sent the offer as a "goodwill gesture" to customers, whose travel plans were disrupted by the mass cancellation of 2,100 flights over a six-week period. Affected ticketholders are to be offered either alternative flights topped up by vouchers or full refunds, the company said.

The latest cancellations are meant to fix Ryanair's rostering crisis by slowing growth during the winter period (November 17 to March 18), according to a statement from the airline.

The CAA is also investigating the airline's rerouting policy after it wrongly told customers it was not obliged to re-route passengers on alternative airlines and failed to state it had to reimburse costs related to re-routing customers via different airports.

The fresh cancellations are set to affect up to 400,000 customers.

The move to cancel 18,000 flight between November and March will "provide stability to pilot rosters" the airline said.

- Eliminate all risk of further flight cancellations, because slower growth creates lots of spare aircraft and crews across Ryanair's 86 bases this winter.

The airline has endured a hard period after cancelling 2,100 flights throughout September and October.

They have also received a €40 travel voucher.

Ryanair's problems with pilot schedules had raised questions in Italy about whether it would be a suitable owner for Alitalia, prompting Italian authorities to investigate the matter and to monitor Ryanair's activities.

"In light of these urgent and continuing concerns, we are now commencing consultation under Section 214 EA02 to achieve cessation by Ryanair of the breaches of consumer protection legislation identified in this letter".
