Ryanair has confirmed that 22 flights a week in and out of Dublin Airport are to be cancelled over the winter period.

It comes after the airline announced yesterday that it was suspending 34 routes between November and March – with around 400,000 passengers set to be affected.

The announcement on Thursday gives detail of individual flights cancelled, while the routes themselves remain operational.

Flights have been cancelled between Dublin and:

  • Birmingham
  • Paris Beauvais
  • Barcelona
  • Bucharest
  • Madrid
  • Warsaw
  • Krakow

Meanwhile the UK aviation regulator has said he is “furious” with the airline over yesterday’s route cancellations - adding that the airline was appearing to show "disregard for consumers and for the law," only ever meeting its obligations when it reaches the steps of a court of law.

The British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) aims to begin "enforcement action" from the CAA for not giving customers accurate information about their rights following hundreds of flight cancellations.

The airline has pledged to fully cooperate with the CAA investigation.

In Ireland, the Commission for Aviation Regulation has said it is fielding up to 300 complaints a week from affected passengers.

Its head Cathy Mannion has reminding passengers whose flights were cancelled with less than two weeks notice, that they are entitled to €250 compensation.
