Ryanair to close Nuremberg and Stockholm Skavsta bases due to MAX delivery delays

    Ryanair DAC CEO Eddie Wilson commented (04-Dec-2019) on the planned closures of the airline’s Nuremberg and Stockholm Skavsta bases in summer 2020, commenting: “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”. The airline is currently in discussions with staff, unions and affected airports to finalise these reductions. [more – original PR]
