pilot strike

  • The High Court has granted Ryanair an injunction to stop this week's strikes by 180 Dublin-based pilots.

    It means members of the Irish Airline Pilots Association won't be able to stage their planned walkout tomorrow and on Friday.

    The order will remain in place until a full hearing on the matter goes ahead.

    Ryanair says all flights scheduled to take off from Irish airports over the next 2 days will now operate as normal.

    The airline has welcomed the High Court's ruling, and says it will come as a huge relief to thousands of Irish passengers.

    Ryanair is calling on Forsa, and the 180 Irish based pilots it represents, to return to mediation talks in order to resolve the dispute over pay and working conditions.



  • Ryanair has announced it will cancel up to 30 Irish flights this Thursday, during a strike by pilots.

    The airline says only some services between Ireland and the UK will be affected, while all Ireland to Europe flights will operate as normal.

    Dublin-based pilots are holding a one day stoppage in a row over working conditions.

    Ryanair says customers whose flights are affected by the strike will have received a text or email today notifying them of the cancellations.

    Customers who have not received a text or email should arrive as scheduled at their departure airport.

  • Ryanair pilots are on strike this morning.

    The airline has cancelled 30 of 290 scheduled flights between Ireland and the UK - but has already alerted affected customers.

    The company says if customers have NOT received notifications - they should travel as normal to their departure airport.

    The strike action is not believed to be affecting any Ryanair flights at Ireland West Airport Knock.
