RYANAIR SLOWS S.2020 GROWTH DUE TO BOEING MAX DELAYS
Nuremberg (2 aircraft) and Stockholm Skavsta (4) to close in March
Ryanair Holdings plc today (4 Dec) updated investors on further delivery delays of the B737 MAX aircraft for summer 2020. Ryanair has again revised its S.2020 schedule based on receiving just 10 MAX aircraft rather than the 20 as previously planned.
As a result, expected traffic growth for FY21 (y.e. 31 March 2021) is cut from 157m guests to 156m. This shortfall in MAX aircraft deliveries will necessitate the closure of two more bases in S.2020; Nuremberg and Stockholm Skavsta. We also expect to cut summer capacity in a number of other existing bases, and we are currently in discussions with our people, our unions, and our affected airports to finalise these minor reductions.
Ryanair DAC CEO 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".
