Ryanair flights pilot strike ireland

However, only those travelling between Ireland and the United Kingdom will be hit by the stoppage.

This week's pilot strike is the first wave of industrial action to hit the low-priced carrier as the summer holiday season expands across the continent. (Ryanair) are more resilient than others because they've never promised anything more than no-frills but deliver on what they promise.

In an update to customers, Ryanair said it could not rule out further disruption.

The Fórsa trade union, of which the IALPA is a branch, said it remained determined to work toward resolving the outstanding issues.

But in the time since then the International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) held a summit in Dublin in which pilots and cabin crew put together a list of 34 demands from Ryanair - but which Mr O'Leary dismissed as "pointless".

In a final effort to avert this strike, we have agreed to meet our pilots and FORSA at a neutral venue kindly provided by Dublin Airport, but we believe this small group of pilots and FORSA are determined to disrupt the travel of Irish customers on 12th July.

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.

The company went on to say that anyone affected by the cancellations will receive a full refund or free transfer to an alternative flight.

The company said customers who had not been notified of a cancellation should check-in as normal.

The airline said it sent proposals to Forsa but the union said they were not the basis of a settlement.

It is the result of a strike by pilots who are due to walk out for 24 hours from 01:00 BST on Thursday.

Ryanair has confirmed that it is to cancel up to 30 flights to and from Ireland on Thursday.
