Ryanair fleet cuts from 30 to 24 planes put 300 jobs at risk



Ryanair has announced it is cutting its Dublin-based fleet from 30 to 24 planes for the winter 2018 season, putting 300 jobs at risk.

 
The six planes will transfer to the carrier's Polish charter airline, which it said was growing rapidly.


Ryanair blamed a downturn in forward bookings and airfares in the Republic of Ireland, partly as a result of recent rolling strikes by Irish pilots.


About 100 pilots and 200 cabin crew have been given 90 days' notice.


The airline said their services "may not be required from 28 October onwards".
It added that it would be offering transfers to Poland and possibly other bases, in order to minimise redundancies.
