We’re glad we don’t have holiday flights planned with Ryanair right now. The company is cancelling hundreds of flights over the next six weeks because it ‘messed up’ the planning of pilots’ holiday.
While the debacle has caused Ryanair to hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons it has at least highlighted the fact that businesses must take holiday planning seriously.
Our client, Adrian Lewis, director of Activ Absence, a cloud software provider for staff holiday planning and absence management commented to the BBC News today, “For any business to run smoothly, as this situation with Ryanair shows, holiday planning is absolutely critical.
“With modern cloud technology today available cost effectively, there is no reason at all that any company should have problems managing annual leave.”
