After unsuccessful discussions with the respective unions, Michael O’Leary is toying closings in Spain, Germany and Italy.
Apparently Ryanair wants to close additional bases. After Ryanair recorded a net loss of the equivalent of 185 million euros in the second quarter of 2020, this was also inevitable. Negotiations with the unions were also not successful. Specifically, it should affect individual bases in Germany, Spain and Italy, as reported by ch-aviation.com.
“We were unable to convince German pilots to accept wage cuts. That is why we announced the closure of our bases in Stuttgart, Berlin-Tegel, Düsseldorf-Weeze and Frankfurt. At the end of the summer flight schedule, the Lauda closure in Stuttgart is also imminent “I think that’s not all. We’re also looking at some bases in Spain where the unions have not yet agreed on the wage cuts we need,” said Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary.
