Ryanair cancels more flights in January

RYANAIR has cancelled more flights in January, after warning a third of their routes would be suspended due to Covid.

The low-cost airline is one of the many being forced to cancel routes due to Covid, blaming low ticket sales and a shortage of staff.

The latest routes to be affected are to and from Denmark, with 28 routes cancelled from January 10, according to Danish aviation website Check In.

This includes routes from London Stansted Airport to Aalborg and Liverpool to Copenhagen.

Billund and Aarhus Airport will also be affected.

Aalborg Airport director Niels Hemmingsen told local media the flights were cancelled due to a lack of ticket sales due to Covid.

The Ryanair cancellations come just hours after 8,000 flights were cancelled this week due to Covid staff shortages.

The cancellations, revealed by airline tracking site flightaware.com, were caused by staff being forced to isolate after testing positive.
