Ryanair cuts yet-to-fly Ibiza, Murcia and Malmo routes from Edinburgh

Ryanair claims 300 jobs will be lost and services cut after talks with BAA to reduce the cost of using the airport broke down.

The airline said it would have to cut the numbers of planes based there from seven to six and will stop flying to Berlin, Malmo, Murcia, Ibiza and Tallinn.

However, the Tallinn flights have already been suspended for the winter and the Ibiza, Malmo and Murcia routes were only announced on 31 January and are yet to start flying.

Industry insiders have rubbished claims that the cuts would cost 300 jobs, as Ryanair does not directly employ any staff at Edinburgh airport.

One insider claimed he was “gobsmacked” by Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary’s claims.
