Ryanair cancellations hit more Riga flights

Irish low-costs airline Ryanair has cancelled two more flights on the Riga-London route scheduled for this Friday, the LETA news agency was told at the Riga International Airport September 19.

Ryanair has cancelled its London/Stansted-Riga flight that was scheduled to land in Riga 10:50 a.m. and the Riga-London/Stansted flight that was scheduled to depart from the Latvian capital at 11:30 a.m. on Friday.

"The airport's information center is getting slightly more calls than usual, as people inquire about Ryanair flights, but there is no particular fuss," the airport's representatives said.

As reported, Ryanair has cancelled two flights on the Riga-London route scheduled for today.

Ryanair announced last Saturday it would cancel 40-50 flights every day up until 20 September in order to improve its punctuality, but this week said the disruption could stretch until the end of October.

Ryanair plans to cancel in total 1,680-2,100 flights to solve problems caused by a mess-up in its pilot rota system, though the airline claims delayed flight control, strikes and poor weather conditions are also to blame.
