Ryanair to cancel up to 30 Irish flights this Thursday

Share

Ryanair have confirmed that 30 of its 290 flights will be affected by the planned strike of staff pilots on Thursday.

Even more pilots will join the strike the airline may handle it by flying in pilots from other parts of Europe despite the definite disruptions the strike will deliver to its flight schedules, said local media reports.

In Italy they have said that they will strike for 24-hours on 25 July, while crew in Spain, Portugal and Belgium will strike for 48 hours on 25-26 July.

The Irish pilots' union (IALPA) supports the strike, although Ryanair claims that only 27% of its own pilots are behind industrial action.

He added that there was "a tremendous opportunity to double, triple, quadruple" trade between the U.S. and the UK. He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K".

Ryanair said it would notify customers of any possible disruption to their flights by tomorrow, Tuesday, two days before the strike.

Ryanair said it would minimise the disruption by cancelling a number of flights on high frequency routes from Ireland to London and other United Kingdom destinations where customers are able to transfer easily onto other flights. Ryanair says it invited IALPA to meet at its headquarters in Swords, north Dublin, on 20 separate occasions since January but it has repeatedly turned down the invitation, requesting a neutral venue for which it is even prepared to pay.

Ryanair is cancelling flights on high frequency routes from Ireland to London and other destinations such as Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle.

The strike, which begins at 1am tomorrow, will be the first by Irish-based pilots in the budget airline's history.

Unions have said further action may follow if the airline does not make concessions on some employment terms.

Ryanair has been critical of strike action by European Air Traffic Controllers in recent weeks but has so far not issued an official response on the strikes facing the company this month.

Ryanair has said it has asked the union to its offices 18 times to no avail.
