Ryanair abandons flights from Northern Ireland Business

The action comes just three months after the airline resumed flights from Belfast City after an 11-year absence.

Ryanair operates routes to Malaga, Alicante, Krakow, Warsaw, Gdansk and Milan from Belfast International.

An airport spokesperson said: “It is disappointing that Ryanair decided to withdraw its operations from the entire Northern Ireland market at the end of October, after having been variously present at the three local airports in recent years. .

“These have been tough times for aviation and a time when consumers need stability and confidence in the Northern Ireland air transport network.”

Earlier on Tuesday, chief executive Michael O’Leary said the airline was on track to meet its goal of carrying between 90 million and 100 million passengers for the year through March 2021. It carried 149 million passengers during the year until March 2019.

Shares jumped 2.1% to € 16.41 in London, valuing the airline at € 18.6 billion.
