Ryanair is closing its bases at Cork and Shannon Airports for the winter because of the Covid 19 pandemic.

The airline says reduced air travel means they’ve no choice.

Ryanair says air travel has been severely curtailed because of flight restrictions across Europe.

It says this has weakened bookings slightly in October but materially in November and December.

As a result, Ryanair has reduced its winder scheduled which runs from November until March and It’s closing its bases in Cork, Shannon and Toulouse.

It had originally planned to run at 60% capacity through the winter - but will now be 40% of what it was a year ago.

Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary is warning it could reduce its capacity even further if travel restrictions remain.

He says they deeply regret these winter schedule cuts which he says have been forced upon them by Government mismanagement of EU air travel.
