Ryanair DAC chief executive Eddie Wilson said, “We regret these two further base closures and minor capacity cuts at other bases, which are solely due to further delivery delays to our Boeing Max aircraft.

“We are continuing to work with Boeing, our people, our unions and our affected airports to minimise these capacity cuts and job losses.”
