Ryanair reduced the number of winter flights: what flights from Ukraine they will cancel
Ryanair, Europe's largest low-cost carrier, will significantly reduce the number of flights this winter. Many flights from Kyiv and Lviv were canceled until the spring.
The company's press service reported.
Ryanair has revised its winter schedule. As a result, because of increased flight restrictions imposed by EU governments, the company has severely restricted air travel to most of Central Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, and Portugal.
Ryanair is currently trying to run at 70% of last year's capacity. In November-March, they will reduce capacity to 40%. Some flights will be done at a reduced frequency, others will be canceled. The largest share of canceled flights is to Belgium, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and Vienna.
Because of these circumstances, the company will start sending employees more often on unpaid leave and will reduce salaries. They plan to avoid mass layoffs, but some employees who do not agree with the new working conditions will still lose their jobs.
Ryanair calls on EU governments to adopt the EU Commission's Traffic Light System, which allows for continued safe air connections with regions with a morbidity rate of less than 50 per 100,000 population.
