RYANAIR has put summer 2021 flights up for sale - but the list does not include any to summer destinations from Leeds Bradford Airport.

The move has prompted fears that the Dublin-based airline could be pulling out of LBA - with one travel agent tweeting “Ryanair have withdrawn their Leeds Bradford base with immediate effect. No flights from the airport are currently on sale.”

When asked about the claim this week a spokeswoman for Ryanair said: “We continue to review and finalise the schedules across our network.”

The airline has extended its current limited schedule and has sent an email to customers telling them that flights for next summer are now available to buy.

The UK airports included on the list are: London Stansted, London Luton, London Southend, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester, and Newcastle.

These include: Barcelona, Faro, Ibiza, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Lanzarote and Tenerife South.

There is a full flight schedule to Dublin from LBA across the summer months next year.

The only other flights available from the airport in 2021 run until March.

This includes: Malaga, Alicante, Tenerife South, Bratislava, Gdansk, Krakow, Warsaw Modlin, Wroclaw and Riga.

Ryanair revealed at the start of this month that up to 3,000 jobs, across pilots and cabin crew, were to be cut, with a number of its aircraft bases across Europe also under review until demand for air travel recovers.

The airline flew more than 20 European routes from Leeds-Bradford before lockdown.

But it said on May 2 its flights will remain grounded until “at least July” and passenger numbers will not return to 2019 levels “until summer 2022 at the earliest”.

Ryanair also announced in the email last week that its current limited flight schedule, “to keep the skies open and maintain vital links”, has been extended until Thursday, May 28.

Once again, LBA is not included on this list.

But, there are flights to and from Manchester and Dublin.

London Stansted has the most extensive schedule currently, flying out to destinations including Eindhoven, Lisbon, Cork, Dublin, Berlin, Budapest, Sofia, Bucharest and Porto.

Ryanair says it expects passenger numbers for the current year to be “less than 80 million” after reducing its target of 100 million given last week, and significantly lower than its original target of 154 million.

In a statement the airline said: “Full year 2021 will be difficult for the Ryanair Group as its airlines work hard to return to scheduled flying following the Covid-19 crisis.”
