The Irish budget airline Ryanair expects to operate even fewer flights in October than the reduced number previously mentioned. The low-coster cut his capacity by 20 percent. That’s what company did in mid-August.
Overall, the number of Ryanair flights is expected to reach a level of 40 percent of the same month a year earlier next month. Furthermore, the average aircraft will be at least 70% full. In doing so, Ryanair maintained its expectations for the capacity utilisation of the aircraft.
According to Ryanair, it is still too early to make final decisions on the winter schedule which lasts from November to March. In view of the current trend and the ‘mismanagement’ of the recovery by EU governments, a similar capacity reduction can be expected in the winter months, according to Ryanair.
