Richard Williams, Head of Transport Policy at The Consumer Council, said, “Passengers have rights that are protected under European law when flights are cancelled.



“This includes the right to a full refund within 7 days or re-routing, under comparable transport conditions, to the final destination at the earliest opportunity.

“Customers should contact Ryanair as soon as possible to discuss their needs,” he added.
