The suspensions by the low cost airline will be between November of 2017 and 2018 March.
The Irish airline Ryanair confirmed the suspension of 34 routes for the winter season in Europe. The remaining 1800 routes will continue to operate, although some could be modified. The main reason for the suspension is to slow down its growth in order to “eliminate any risk of future cancellations added”.
Ryanair has already communicated with affected customers giving them the options of a change in flight or a full refund. It is estimated that those affected would be about 400,000 passengers.
Another initiative taken by the airline is an adjustment of capacity since April 2018 where will be removed 10 aircraft operations, trying to eliminate the risk of new cancellations “since growth slower releases many aircraft and support crews for the 86 bases of Ryanair”. In this way, they will also be able to organize the holidays of the pilots, reason which caused numerous cancellations that Ryanair is experiencing during this month and next October.
