If you’re one of those potential Ryanair customers who welcomed the airlines scheduled opening of service into Lviv – and were then disappointed with its almost immediate cancellation, please step to the rear of the line – right behind the several hundred thousand people who saw their already scheduled flights disappear. Warning: The line to lodge complaints is long and may get very unruly.

Ryanair announced today that 34 routes will be suspended from November through to March 2018 as it seeks to bring an end to its flight cancellation troubles.

 

The decision means routes including London Gatwick to Belfast, and London Stansted to Edinburgh and Glasgow have been suspended, with up to 18,000 flights and 400,000 more people affected.

 

The airline said it will slow growth to curb the risk of having to announce more cancellations by flying 25 fewer aircraft and reducing its flying schedule.

1. Bucharest - Palermo

18. Sofia - Castellon

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary said:

 

We sincerely apologise to those customers who have been affected by last week’s flight cancellations, or these sensible schedule changes announced today.

 

While over 99 per cent of our 129m customers will not have been affected by any cancellations or disruptions, we deeply regret any doubt we caused existing customers last week about Ryanair’s reliability, or the risk of further cancellations.
