Ryanair Gives Chilling Warning if Holiday Flights to Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca in Spain Remain Grounded

RYANAIR boss Michael O’Leary has given a chilling warning over the company’s workforce if holiday flights to the Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol in Spain remain grounded.

His comments came after the High Court in Spain last Friday (April 24) ordered his company to reinstate staff that were made redundant earlier this year from bases in the Canary Islands and in Girona.

The budget carrier sacked the workers in January using a delay to the delivery of a new fleet of planes as the reason.

Ryanair have launched an appeal over the court ruling, but more redundancies could be on the way.

Company CEO Michael O’Leary has said that if restrictions on flying to popular destinations like Spain continue past May, then redundancies are inevitable.

He stated that the current business plan is working on the basis of a “limited” resumption in June.

“We’ve certainly guaranteed all of our people that we would maintain the payroll through April and through May. If it continues beyond that, I think we would have to look at some job losses,” O’Leary said.
