Hundreds of Ryanair flights cancelled over European strikes

Ryanair pilots in several European countries staged a strike over work conditions on Friday that prompted the budget carrier to cancel 400 flights.

Pilots in Ireland are staging their latest 24-hour walkout and are joined by pilots in Belgium, German, Sweden and the Netherlands with around 50,000 passengers being affected.

Dutch pilots' union VNV also called for a strike on Friday, after Ryanair said it was going to court on Thursday to try to prevent the Dutch pilots from striking over the summer.

Ryanair said the union had refused to give seven days notice of the strike in Germany, which would have allowed the airline to minimise disruption to it customers.

The airline has been grappling with staff unrest since it recognised trade unions for the first time in December 2017, in a bid to ward off widespread strikes over the Christmas period.

In June Ryanair signed an agreement with the Unite union, giving hundreds of cabin crew employees full consultation rights and collective bargaining.

"Germany in particular is a lucrative market for Ryanair, with the number of aircraft at Frankfurt Airport set to double from 20 to 40 in the medium term", the pilot added.

Around 55,000 passengers would be affected by the strikes, said Ryanair, which has offered customers refunds or the option of rerouting their journey.

Ryanair has repeatedly said it remains open to further talks with pilot representatives.

In July, around 300 flights were cancelled in similar strikes in Portugal, Spain and Belgium.

A Ryanair spokesperson said it has cancelled 250 of more than 2,400 flights scheduled to operate tomorrow in Germany.

Which? travel editor Rory Boland said the dispute resolution service used by Ryanair had already confirmed it would uphold a previous European ruling that crew strikes are not usually considered "extraordinary circumstances".

Ryanair did not respond to requests for a comment on the union's statement.

It also called on the striking unions to return to negotiations rather than "calling any more unjustified strikes".
