Budget Carrier Ryanair Wields Axe Again in Fresh Sackings in Spain’s Madrid and UK’s Stansted as Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca Flights Remain Grounded

LOW cost air carrier Ryanair is sacking yet more workers in Spain and the UK following April’s announcement of thousands of redundancies.

Two hundred and fifty office staff are to go from the company’s offices in Madrid and Stansted, in addition to Dublin and Wroclaw.

The job cuts will come from a mixture of sackings, voluntary redundancies, and non-renewal of fixed-term contracts.

The fresh blow comes as Ryanair said in April that it would be laying off up to 3,000 staff.

Darren Hughes, People Director for Ryanair said: “This is a very painful time for Ryanair, our crews and our people supporting operations from our Dublin, Stansted, Madrid and Wroclaw offices.”

The carrier says that it plans to operate around 40 per cent of its regular services across all of its scheduled routes from July 1.

That bold statement made earlier in the week takes no account of what measures will be taken on reopening European borders.

Spain today (May 15) announced that it is extending its international border closures to non-essential travellers until mid-June.
