JM reports that the JPP “Peoples Party” (who seem to be making a lot of local headlines recently) announced yesterday that it will ask Eddie Wilson, Executive President of Ryanair, for a parliamentary hearing so that he “clarifies in a clear and objective way the Madeirans and Porto-Santenses regarding the reimbursement of the Social Mobility Subsidy (SSM) for those who fly this company”.

“JPP has received many complaints from Madeirans who fly on the airline Ryanair, namely with regard to access to the necessary documentation for the processing of the SSM. law, this entity understands that the documentation issued by Ryanair does not comply with what is stated in the SSM Decree-Law in order to claim the subsidy.

The request addressed to the president of the 2nd Permanent Committee on Economy, Finance and Tourism, will also include the director general of the Treasury and Finance, Maria João Araújo, the Regional Secretary for Tourism and Culture, Eduardo Jesus, and the chairman of the Board of Directors of the CTT, Raul de Oliveira.

“This hearing of these entities/personalities aims to clarify the situation and solve the problem of the many Madeirans and Porto-Santenses who are harmed in their right to travel and to receive the reimbursement to which they are entitled, quickly and effectively”, says the JPP

  1. Before commenting can someone explain the SSM and how exactly the rules are being broken. Also if there is a refund to Madeirans, is it paid by the company or the Government ?
