Ryanair to close Dusseldorf-Weeze if operating hours decision not overturned
Ryanair says it will close its base at Dusseldorf-Weeze with the loss of 2.5 million passengers and 2,500 local jobs if the decision by the OVG Court in Munster to restrict the airport’s operating hours is not overturned.
Ryanair, which currently operates six based aircraft at Dusseldorf-Weeze, has stopped accepting bookings on all flights affected by the change in the airport’s operating hours. The airline will review the court’s decision with the airport and its lawyers, but confirmed that the base will close if the court decision to restrict operating hours is not overturned next week.
Ryanair’s deputy chief executive, Michael Cawley, commented, "If the decision to restrict the airport is not overturned by Wednesday 29 April, we will announce a plan to withdraw our base at Dusseldorf Weeze as it will be impossible to operate our schedule with these restrictions in place."
