Budget airline Ryanair warned about job cuts as the virus crisis has battered demand for flights.
Ryanair is scaling back its winter schedule because of Covid flight restrictions across the EU. It will only run 40% as many flights as last year from November to March, down from the 60% capacity previously planned.
Ryanair chief executive, Michael O’Leary, says: “There will regrettably be more redundancies at those small number of cabin crew bases, where we have still not secured agreement on working time and pay cuts, which is the only alternative,”
“While we deeply regret these winter schedule cuts they have been forced upon us by government mismanagement of EU air travel.”
