The net gains of the airline have been revised downwards by 12%, mainly due to repeated strikes. The company now anticipates an adjusted annual profit of between 1.1 and 1.2 billion

It’s a double dip for the low-cost airline, which is under the same pressure as the national airlines. Ryanair announced on Monday 1 October a downward revision of 12% of its adjusted annual profit target. For the 2018-2019 financial year, which will end on 31 March, Ryanair has stated that it anticipates net gains of between 1.1 and 1.2 billion euros, compared with a previous range of forecasts ranging from 1.25 to 1, 35 billion.
