Ryanair to cut Italy operations due to govt tax hikes

About 600 jobs to go

(ANSA) - Rome, February 2 - Airline Ryanair is set to close its bases at Alghero in Sardinia and Pescara on Italy's eastern coast, cut some flight routes and halt all flights from Crotone in Calabria due to tax hikes, the company said on Tuesday.
    Ryanair said it was reducing operations due to the "illogical decision of the Italian government to raise municipal taxes further".
    The firm said during a news conference that 16 air routes would be cut, 800,000 clients would be lost and 600 jobs will go.
