In a state­ment is­sued, the no-frills air­line “apol­o­gised sin­cerely to the small num­ber of cus­tomers af­fected”

Robin Kiely said: “We have op­er­ated a record sched­ule (and traf­fic num­bers) dur­ing the peak sum­mer months of July and Au­gust but must now al­lo­cate an­nual leave to pilots and cabin crew in Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber (while still run­ning the bulk of our sum­mer sched­ule).

“We apol­o­gise sin­cerely to the small num­ber of cus­tomers af­fected by these can­cel­la­tions, and will be do­ing our ut­most to ar­range al­ter­na­tive flights and/or full re­funds.”
