Low cost carrier Ryanair will discontinue its year-round flights from Stockholm Skavsta Airport to Banja Luka, Niš and Podgorica at the start of the 2020 summer season, as well as seasonal services to Rijeka due to the closure of its base.
However, its seasonal flights from Zadar remain unaffected, EX-YU Aviation News
The airline said the base closure comes as a result of delays in the delivery of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft which are currently grounded by aviation authorities across the world.
– We also expect to cut summer capacity in a number of other existing bases, and we are currently in discussions with our people, our unions, and our affected airports to finalize these minor reductions – Ryanair said in a statement.
Ryanair handled some 1.2 million passengers to and from Skavsta each year and accounted for about 50% of the airport’s traffic.
