Budget airline Ryanair to cancel 40-50 flights per day for six weeks



Ryanair is to cancel 40 to 50 flights every day for the next six weeks, in a bid to improve punctuality of flights.

 
The budget Irish-based airline announced the plan on Friday, saying that it was "unacceptable" that its punctuality had fallen below 80% in the first half of this month.


It also said it had to clear a backlog of staff leave by the end of the year.


The move could affect up to 285,000 passengers, who will be offered alternative flights or refunds.


Ryanair said that less than 2% of its flights would be cancelled and the move would help it hit its annual punctuality target of 90%.
