Crew will accept a temporary pay cut over four years as airlines struggle with coronavirus effects.
Despite the recent improvement, air-travel demand remains weak year over year. Consequently, Ryanair (RYAAY) and Gol Linhas (GOL) report massive declines in their respective June traffic.
A Ryanair flight with 164 people on board made an emergency landing at Thessaloniki airport on Friday after reporting a fire, Greek authorities said. The flight from Berlin to Athens issued a distress signal and sought permission to make an emergency landing while flying over the Halkidiki region of Greece, the civil protection ministry said. Emergency protocols were deployed and the aircraft landed safely at Thessaloniki's Macedonia airport, where 157 ticketed passengers, an infant and six members of the crew disembarked, it said.
Low air travel demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic dents Ryanair's (RYAAY) June Traffic. However, its July projection to carry more than 4.5 million passengers is a tailwind.
The Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) overtook Ryanair in the top 10 rankings of Europe's biggest carbon dioxide emitters in 2019, a list that is still dominated by big coal-fired power plants, European Union data showed. Data compiled by Brussels-based think tank Transport & Environment (T&E) showed MSC emitted an estimated 10.72 million tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2019, ranking it seventh in the EU, rising above Ryanair at No. 8, which produced an estimated 10.53 million tonnes.
Low cost carrier Ryanair <RYA.I> resumed flights from Athens after a near four-month grounding due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, it said on Thursday. A flight from Athens to Rome's Ciampino airport marked the first of Ryanair's summer schedule for Athens on June 24. The country has managed to contain coronavirus infections to 3,409 since its first case in February but its economy is expected to contract by 8% this year, hurt by a slump in tourism.
Ryanair's British pilot union on Wednesday said that its members had voted by 96% to accept temporary pay cuts in order to avoid jobs losses. The British Airline Pilots Association said that Ryanair <RYA.I> had notified it in May that 330 pilot jobs were at risk, and that the vote to accept a 20% pay reduction would save 260 of those jobs.
Ryanair's UK-based pilots have voted to take pay cuts. Their union said 96% backed the temporary measure, in a bid to stop job losses. Europe’s biggest budget airline may still see wider redundancies though. Earlier boss Michael O’Leary warned up to 3,000 jobs were at risk. He said avoiding that would require pay cuts from cabin crew, as well as pilots. There are some glimmers of hope. O’Leary said Wednesday (July 1) that bookings were now ‘very strong’. He hopes August passenger numbers will get back to around half their usual level. "So I think numbers will return reasonably quickly... So, summer '21, we expect to be carrying the summer '19 passenger volumes, back on track for a 150 million passengers. But I think pricing will take another year or two - it could be summer '22, summer '23 before we see a return to pre-COVID pricing, but much of that depends on how much capacity gets taken out by our competitors." Rivals certainly are reducing capacity. On Wednesday easyJet said it would cut jobs, planes and maybe all domestic flights in Germany. That a day after it said more than 700 of its UK-based pilots were at risk. In May it said it needed to lose 4,500 posts overall. Meanwhile Air France is expected to shed 7,600 jobs in a restructuring plan set to be announced this week.
Ryanair reported "very strong" bookings from holidaymakers as it relaunched its network with 1,000 flights on Wednesday, the start of a summer that Group Chief Executive Michael O'Leary hopes will restore Europe's confidence in air travel. Europe's largest low-cost carrier has been flying a skeleton service since the COVID-19 pandemic closed down much of Europe in March. O'Leary, one of the loudest advocates for a reopening of European air travel from COVID-19 restrictions, said he was hopeful the airline could go from 4.5 million passengers in July to as many as 6 million in August, around half its normal level.
Ryanair is still planning around 3,000 additional job losses if it cannot agree pay cuts with pilots and cabin crew, a spokeswoman for the airline said on Wednesday. Group Chief Executive Michael O'Leary earlier told the BBC that the airline had announced about 3,500 job losses, but the spokeswoman later clarified that Ryanair's plans to cut 3,000 pilot and cabin crew jobs had not changed. Europe's biggest budget airline has cut more than 250 staff from its offices around Europe and the additional potential cuts would be split between pilots and cabin crew, with whom the company is currently in pay negotiations.
Ryanair, one of the largest customers for Boeing's troubled 737 MAX, hopes to take its first delivery in November after the jet's first test flight appeared to go well, Group Chief Executive Michael O'Leary said on Wednesday. Boeing Co <BA.N> this week began a series of long-delayed flight tests of its redesigned 737 MAX with regulators at the controls after the second of two fatal crashes grounded the jet worldwide in early 2019. Ryanair <RYA.I>, Europe's largest low-cost airline, has 210 737 MAX jets on order and is in talks with Boeing over compensation for delays to deliveries, which were due to start last year.
European stock markets are set to open lower Wednesday, with the second half of the year starting with worries about the Covid-19 outbreak still prominent even as data releases offer hope of a global economic recovery. At 2:00 AM ET (0600 GMT), the DAX futures contract in Germany traded 0.4% lower. France's CAC 40 futures were down 0.1%, while the FTSE 100 futures contract in the U.K. fell 0.4%.
Ryanair <RYA.I> expects to fly more than 4.5 million passengers in July as it returns to a more regular schedule with 40% of its usual capacity for the peak summer month, it said on Wednesday. While that would be a drop of almost 70% from July last year, it would be a huge increase from April and May when Europe's biggest budget airline flew just 110,000 passengers. Ryanair is trying to entice passengers back into the sky with lower fares and said a sale introduced on Wednesday represented the lowest fares ever offered by Ryanair during the peak summer months.
Ryanair's British pilot union is to announce on Wednesday whether its members have backed an agreement brokered with management to mitigate the loss of 334 pilot jobs by agreeing to series of measures including a 20% pay cut, the union said. The British Airline Pilots Association said it had negotiated with Ryanair "to mitigate the potential loss of 334 UK pilot jobs," which the airline had notified the union of on May 18. It has said the number of job cuts might be smaller if staff agree to pay cuts and productivity improvements.

Ryanair has filed a complaint to EU antitrust regulators about alleged talks between Lufthansa's Italian unit Air Dolomiti and three Italian airlines to fix prices, the chief legal officer of Europe's biggest budget airline said on Thursday. The complaint also cites alleged price fixing in Austria involving Lufthansa's local unit Austrian Airlines. "I can confirm that the price fixing cartel complaint was filed with the European Commission," Ryanair's Juliusz Gomorek told reporters.
