Ryanair threatens base closures

Ryanair has announced plans to close its bases in both Cork and Shannon airports this winter unless the Government rows back its 14-day quarantine requirement for visitors to Ireland.ryanair1217
The move would deal a blow to the regional airports which, in Cork’s case, has seen passenger numbers plunge 95% due to the pandemic and ongoing travel restrictions.
Under the plans, 130 staff — 35 pilots and 95 cabin crew — would be forced to take unpaid leave from the end of October.
Flights into and out of Cork and Shannon, from other Ryanair bases across the UK, will also be significantly reduced this winter, the airline has said.
