Ryanair flags peak summer flight cuts due to Boeing delays


Ryanair flags peak summer flight cuts due to Boeing delays

Friday, 01 Mar, 2024 0

Ryanair is flagging schedule changes and reduced frequencies on some routes for the peak summer holiday period.

It comes due to delivery delays for its new Boeing Max aircraft.

It was expecting 57 Max jets by June but will now only receive 40.

Ryanair says its peak summer schedule was based on receiving at least 50 new aircraft.

“This will cause some schedule changes and will reduce frequencies on existing routes rather than cutting new routes,” the airline said.

Ryanair says it has already made some schedule cuts at airports where fees are high, most notably Dublin, Milan Malpensa, Warsaw Modlin and four Portuguese airports.

Affected passengers have been notified.

Ryanair hopes Boeing can deliver the remaining aircraft during the peak summer months but these will likely not be in service for the peak season.

Ryanair’s Group CEO Michael O’Leary said: “We are very disappointed at these latest Boeing delivery delays, but we continue to work with Boeing to maximise the number of aircraft we receive by the end of June.”

“We will now work with Boeing to help reduce their delivery backlog.”

“We regret any inconvenience caused to some customers and our airport partners by these enforced schedule changes.”
