Ryanair postpones Edinburgh base opening
Ryanair has announced that it has had to postpone the opening of its Edinburgh base as a result of strike action at airplane manufacturer Boeing.
The six week deferral of the opening, from 23rd September to 5th November is as a result of Boeing being unable to deliver the new aircraft Ryanair has purchased to operate on its new Edinburgh routes.
Announcing the postponement today, Ryanair's Deputy Chief Executive, Michael Cawley, said:
"We sincerely regret the postponement of the opening of our Edinburgh base but unfortunately the two new aircraft, which we had reserved for this purpose, are now indefinitely delayed due to a strike by Boeing employees. However, due to increased aircraft availably in our fleet from early November we will be able to operate these exciting new Edinburgh routes from 5th November.
Passengers who were booked to travel on our new routes during this initial six week period will be refunded over the next seven days. We sincerely apologise to all our passengers for the inconvenience caused by this forced change to our schedule. However, we look forward to seeing our Edinburgh passengers on board our state of the art aircraft from 5th November".
