Dublin airport chaos cost 1 mln euros/day-Ryanair

DUBLIN, July 11 (Reuters) - Ryanair (RYA.I), Europe’s biggest low-cost carrier, said on Friday that severe disruptions at Dublin airport this week caused by a faulty radar on Wednesday cost it nearly 1 million euros ($1.6 million) per day.

“The bill is running up on a daily basis. On Wednesday alone we had to cancel 74 flights,” Ryanair (RYA.L) Chief Executive Michael O’Leary said.

“It’s probably something of the order of nearly a million euros in one day,” O’Leary told public broadcaster RTE.
