At budget fighter Ryanair hundreds of jobs are at risk. Irish society sees expansion plans being confused by, among other things, brexit problems and the problems with the Boeing 737 MAX devices that are being held on the ground for safety reasons worldwide.
CEO Michael O’Leary said in a video message that the company currently has a surplus of 500 pilots and 400 cabin employees. In addition, O’Leary reported that the company is expected to need another 600 fewer employees next summer. According to the top executive, attempts are being made to limit the number of redundancies.
Ryanair had previously warned of possible interventions as a result of the Brexit and the MAX problems that also prevent Ryanair’s fleet renewal. The company may close some bases in Europe or may contract them.
