Ryanair to cut German flights over new tax

31 October 2010

Ryanair announced it will cancel nine routes from Frankfurt-Hahn airport beginning next summer due to an air passenger tax agreed upon by the federal government this year.

The number of flights flying from Hahn will fall from 532 per week to 382, the Irish low-cost carrier said on Wednesday, as services to cities including Seville, Danzig, Prague and Gothenburg are slashed.

The controversial tax, or “‘ecological air travel levy,'” was included in a package of public spending cuts introduced by Chancellor Angela Merkel earlier this year.
