Ryanair hits ma­jor tur­bu­lence

NewsMail - - WORLD NEWS -

CUT-price Ir­ish air­line Ryanair will can­cel up to 50 flights per day un­til the end of Oc­to­ber to im­prove its on-time flight record. The can­cel­la­tions, which be­gin im­me­di­ately, are de­signed to im­prove its punc­tu­al­ity which has fallen be­low 80% in the first two weeks of Septem­ber. If the air­line can­cels 40 flights per day for six weeks, ap­prox­i­mately 285,000 jour­neys will be af­fected. The air­line is waiv­ing its $59 sur­charge nor­mally levied to change flights. The air­line blamed air traf­fic con­trol strikes, weather dis­rup­tions and a back­log of crew leave for the de­ci­sion.
