As a result, 34 routes are suspended for the winter season as the airline flies 25 less planes from its fleet of 400.
Several routes popular with British travellers will be hit, including London Stansted to Edinburgh and Glasgow, Gatwick to Belfast, Newcastle to Faro, and Glasgow to Las Palmas.
Though over 99 percent of the airline's 129 million customers will not be affected, O'Leary said "we deeply regret any doubt we caused existing customers last week about Ryanair's reliability, or the risk of further cancellations".
He said Ryanair will start a new 12 month leave period on January 1, 2018 in full compliance with European Union regulations and the Irish Aviation Authority's requirements.
Andrew Haines, the CAA's chief executive, says: "There are clear laws in place, which are meant to assist passengers in the event of a cancellation, helping minimise both the frustration and inconvenience caused by circumstances completely out of their control".
Ryanair plunged deeper into crisis Wednesday with the cancellation of more flights, threatening the travel plans of another 400,000 customers, while the low-priced airline dropped its bid for Italy's Alitalia.
They announced today that three return flights between Dublin and Birmingham (FR 664 and FR 665), Paris Beauvais (FR 22 and FR 23) and Barcelona (FR 3977 and FR 3976) on Mondays between November and March will be cancelled.
This same voucher has also been offered to the 315,000 customers affected by flight cancellations across a six-week period in September-October, as an addition to "reaccommodation/refunds" already received and forthcoming EU261 compensation.
Airlines must also help by providing food, drink or overnight accommodation if flights are cancelled and you choose to wait for an alternative flight.
After two weeks of chaos, Irish budget airline Ryanair announced that it is canceling hundreds of flights from November.
The airline also announced that it will withdraw its bid from buying Italian airline Alitalia to "eliminate all management distractions".
In a lengthy statement posted on its website, Ryanair pointed out that all those affected - fewer than 1% of its 50 million customers - will receive a €40 travel voucher.
