The airline has cancelled 300 flights to Belgium Portugal and Spain next week

Up to 50 flights starting or ending in Portugal and Belgium have been cancelled.

On Tuesday, Ryanair announced the cancellation of 24 flights after the trade union refused to postpone its planned strike action for Friday but Ryanair insisted that 90% of the 4,000 passengers affected have been refunded or rerouted.

Next week's insane summer holiday getaway disaster scenario is going to be even more miserable than usual for some, thanks to a Ryanair strike causing hundreds of flights to be cancelled across Europe.

The Irish airline said in a statement it expected disruption to the travel plans of nearly 50,000 customers travelling to and from Belgium, Portugal and Spain as it would cancel up to 300 flights per day.

Ryanair has warned passengers that it will cancel up to 600 flights in Europe next week as cabin crew prepare to strike in Belgium, Portugal and Spain.

Suzuki Burgman Street launched at Rs 68,000
Suzuki has equipped the scooter with a front disc and rear drum brake along with CBS (combi-brake system) as standard. The BS IV engine scooter produces 8.7 ps at 7,000 rpm and the torque races 10.2 Nm at 5,000 rpm.

Affected customers were notified by email and SMS, the airline said on its website.

It is estimated the cancellations will affect up to 100,000 customers. It follows an agreement with Italian cabin crew Union representatives at ANPAC and ANPAV and with UNITE to represent its UK-based cabin crew staff.

"Ryanair sincerely apologises to our customers for these disruptions which we have done our utmost to avoid", said Ryanair's chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs. He said the strikes are "entirely unjustified and will achieve nothing".

At the same time, Ryanair noted that the salary of the steward reaches 40,000 euro per year and they have 14 weekends per month and sick pay.

The airline will consider issues including demands for local contracts by some staff, but the airline needs to maintain its "low-cost, high-efficiency" model, he said.
