Nordic flights on new list include Stockholm-Sofia, Oslo-Hamburg
Low-cost carrier Ryanair has listed a second wave of flight cancellations that will affect another 400,000 people. It now faces action from the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority for “persistently misleading passengers” about their rights.
The regulator made the warning after the airline said it would axe a further 18,000 flights on 34 routes between November and March, on top of the ones it has already announced.
The carrier says it has emailed the customers who are affected, offering a refund or an alternative flight. The customers will also get a travel voucher a one-way or return flight that can be used for travel between October and March next year.
Nordic passengers will be affected by cancelled flights on the new list, which can be seen here, such as Stockholm-Sofia, Oslo-Hamburg and Newcastle-Faro.
The CAA has warned chief executive Michael O’Leary that the airline was wrong in initially telling passengers it did not have to arrange new flights for them. Ryanair was also wrong, the CAA added, when it failed to tell passengers they could be rerouted with other airlines if an alternative Ryanair flight was not available. Legal action may follow, it said.
