Ryanair has announced its intention to reduce flights to the Portuguese airports of Faro and Porto. This winter, the company has already closed its base in Ponta Delgada in the Azores and plans to halve the number of aircraft based in Madeira.

Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary said that the reason for such actions was the increase in fees imposed by ANA Aeroportos de Portugal, which operates 10 airports across the country. The Sun reports that in 2024, total airport fees in Portugal should increase by 14.6% and amount to about 1.60 euros. In Porto, the figure will increase by 11.9%, and in Faro - by 11.4%.

According to Michael O'Leary, if ANA continues its monopoly price increase until 2024, then Ryanair will have to cut one of its two aircraft in Madeira, which will lead to a reduction in the schedule from Faro and Porto for the summer of 2024.

"ANA's monopoly should follow the lead of other major European airports, especially in Spain, and freeze or reduce fees to stimulate traffic and restore tourism in Portugal after COVID. Instead, ANA is damaging Portugal's competitiveness with this excessive and unjustified 17 percent fare increase that will crowd out much-needed tourism growth, especially in Madeira and the Azores," Michael O'Leary said.
