Budget carrier Ryanair has announced it would cancel up to 50 flights a day through October to improve punctuality. Codacons said Saturday the decision will have repercussions for “thousands and thousands of Italian travelers,” and that passengers should be fully reimbursed or rebooked on other flights at no additional cost.
Codacons added that “in light of what happened, the air carrier does not seem the most adapted to take over Alitalia.”
Ryanair’s CEO has said the low-cost carrier would make a bid for the long-range assets of Alitalia, which filed for bankruptcy in May.
