Ryanair has touted the possibility of job losses and pay cuts. The news, aimed at Irish pilots, comes as the low-cost carrier has had to ground almost all of its fleet. However, it seems as though extreme measures will only be on the cards from the start of June onwards.
Ryanair has been greatly affected the current global aviation crisis. A little over a month ago the airline’s boss told Simple Flying he expected the current crisis to pass by Easter. However, since then it has developed in ways nobody would’ve imagined.
The current situation
In a memo seen by Simple Flying the airline’s Director of Operations, Neil McMahon, discussed the issues facing Ryanair. He commented that “We do not intend to layoff any of our Irish based Pilots in April or May”.
