The budget airline Ryanair gets various machines from Germany. The Bremen location with two planes is scheduled to close in early November, the Irish company said. In North Rhine-Westphalia, Weeze is deducted two out of five aircraft.
"All involved customers have been informed and most routes will be continued," spokesman Robin Kiely said. Most routes from Bremen are to take over foreign machines, in Weeze, to make the three remaining planes.
Union criticizes Ryanair
The trade union Ver.di accused the airline that the transfer was a "retaliatory attack" for the recent strikes. "We urge Ryanair to immediately revoke this decision and not threaten the existence of the employees," said Christine Behle, CEO of Ver.di. Many employees took part in the warnings at both locations. According to Ver.di, about 90 employees work for Ryanair in Bremen.
Pilots and flight attendants have repeatedly beaten in several European cities. The flight crew wants to achieve higher wages and better working conditions in accordance with the respective national legislation. On Friday, at least 250 flights were canceled due to the shutdown of flight attendants and pilots.
The airline had lowered its business expectations before the announcement regarding the Bremen and Weeze locations, for example because fuel had become more expensive. The strikes have also undermined customer confidence, said Michael O & # 39; Leary, CEO of Ryanair.
According to O & # 39; Leary, the budget airline had to deal with fewer bookings for the autumn and Christmas holidays. Ticket prices had to reduce Ryanair more. The airline is now reducing its capacity by one percent for the winter season.
