Ryanair cancels 18.000 MORE flights that will affect 400.000 passengers –

 Ryanair has announced it will scrap a further 18.000 flights until March 2018 – having already axed more than 2,000 routes.

The airline has said it will remove 25 of its 400 planes from November this year, a move they claim will prevent further flight cancellations.

All affected passengers have received a €40 travel voucher which will allow them to book a flight on any Ryanair service between October and March 2018, it said. The firm has been forced into the cancellations after miscalculating pilot leave.

Taking more flights out of service means Ryanair will be able to ‘roster all of the extra pilot leave necessary’ in October, November and December, the budget airline said. As a result, 34 routes are suspended for the winter season from November to March 2018.

This includes routes such as London Stansted to Edinburgh and Glasgow, Gatwick to Belfast, Newcastle to Faro, and Glasgow to Las Palmas.
