Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary confirmed that flights to Zaventem in Brussels will stop because of a new flight tax at the airport.
Flights will move the flights by the end of the month until at least March 2023.
He said: “This winter is going to be extremely challenging, with higher fuel costs, so an increase in airport charges like in Zaventem is not sustainable.”
Flights will instead move to Charleroi Airport or other neighbouring countries.
Zaventem is a popular airport with Brits wanting cheap fights to Brussels, and is especially popular during the winter for the Christmas markets.
It isn’t the only airport Ryanair is stopping flights to and from. Ryanair flights will no longer operate at Athens until the end of March.
Wizz Air confirmed that nearly all flights from Cardiff Airport will be cancelled for the next six months, citing “economic pressures”.
UK airline Loganair – the largest regional airline in the country – confirmed that 300 flights are being scrapped between November 2022 and March 2023.
The cancellations will affect Newquay Airport, with flights to Cornwall from Manchester and Edinburgh being affected.
