Ryanair Upset About Diversions

Published lördag 13 februari 2010 kl 10.47
A Ryanair flight met by rescue services at Skavsta in 2008

The budget airline Ryanair is feuding with one of its major Swedish hubs, Skavsta airport, near Nyköping, around 100 kilometers south of Stockholm. Twice in the past week Ryanair flights which arrived about 15 minutes late were refused permission to land at Skavsta and were diverted to Stockholm’s Arlanda International Airport.

Ryanair’s head of communications Stephen McNamara says an airport should never deny permission for a plane to land at its destination. He says the airline will not tolerate this, but declines to say whether Ryanair will ask for compensation.

Skavsta’s head Dot Gade Kuloruori says that no landings are allowed at the airport after 11:30 PM because there are no rescue services after that time.

While the diversions to Arlanda will have meant increased costs for Ryanair, it’s by no means certain the passengers minded the change. Ryanair uses Skavsta because it’s cheaper to operate there. Stockholm-bound passengers would have probably preferred landing much closer to their final destinations.
