Ryanair Cuts Flights in Italy
Ryanair has decided to cut its domestic operations in Italy, temporarily from
January 23, 2010. This development has come in after a disagreement between ENAC
and Ryanair over minimization of check-in documents for better passenger
Ryanair has condemned and objected to the decision of less number of check-in
documents. As per the airliner this will not provide a secured identification
and may lead to security violations. With growing terrorist activities across
the world, Ryanair feels security checks need to be more stringent.
Ryanair has unwelcomed ENAC's decision of reduced check-in documentation on
domestic Italian flights. The documents which ENAC has approved for
identification include - Company ID's and Fishing permit. As per ENAC if any
airliner fails to comply their operations will come to an arrest.
It would be interesting to see the next steps adopted by Ryanair or ENAC in
order to solve this deadlock. Italy is one of the major hubs of the airliner
with 10 bases, the prominent ones include - Milan. Rome's Ciampino airport and
