EIGHT FLIGHTS IN and out of Dublin airport are among the 81 that have been cancelled by Ryanair for today.

Flights to and from Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Nantes in France, Santander in Spain, and Frankfurt in Germany have all been cancelled.

The budget carrier has been cutting flights this weekend, and will be doing so to the tune of 40-50 each day until the end of October, in a bid to improve its punctuality.

The cancellations have resulted from issues surrounding rostered holidays for Ryanair pilots.

The list of cancelled flights is as follows:

Ireland’s Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR) has urged customers affected by the cancellations to check if they’re entitled to compensation from the airline:

“If you have been affected by the Ryanair programme of flight cancellations you are entitled to a choice of refund or rerouting. Compensation may also be payable depending on the notice period Ryanair has given you,” Car said in a statement released yesterday.

Ryanair has said that its punctuality has fallen below 80% in the first two weeks of September due to a number of reasons including air traffic control (ATC) strikes, weather disruptions and the impact of increased holiday allocations to pilots and cabin crew.
