Ryanair facing major payouts over flight cancellations

Hundreds of thousands of Ryanair’s customers across Europe are advised they’re entitled to refunds and compensation due to cancellations.

The Commission for Aviation Regulation says passengers are entitled to a refund or an alternative flight.

Some may also be able to claim compensation depending on several factors.
