Ryanair targets Stansted for cancelled flights

Stansted airport in Essex is to be targeted by Ryanair for cancelled flights because it is their busiest hub airport with other alternative flights and destinations.

The company has been heavily criticised for cancelling 50 flights a day across its European network until the end of October.

In a press conference, Ryanair's CEO Michael O'Leary apologised to passengers for the uncertainly caused by the airline.

He said two routes of the 41 operated by the airline through Stansted would be affected in the next six weeks although the company has not yet revealed which they are.

Ryanair said overall the cancellations will affect less than 2% of all customers over the next 6 weeks and the majority of these passengers will be offered alternative flights on the same or next day.

The company says passengers who don't take alternative flights will receive a full refund and compensation.

Mr O'Leary said it expected compensation claims would cost the company nearly £18 million and there would be more than £4 million in lost revenue.
