Ryanair To Contact Passengers With Strikes Likely To Go Ahead


Share this article


Ryanair will today begin contacting passengers set to be affected by Thursday's planned pilot’s strike.

Both sides in the dispute have agreed to enter talks tomorrow – however the Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (IALPA) has said it still expects the strike to go ahead.

The 24-hour work stoppage is expected to have an impact on 7% of Ryanair's overall schedule.

Affected passengers are due to be contacted by text and email today. The airline will use the communications to outline what contingency plans it has in place.

The dispute between the airline and its pilots centres on issues like union recognition, base transfers and seniority.

The two sides are due to meet in the Seán Lemass Room at Terminal One in Dublin Airport tomorrow morning.

Ryanair had originally insisted it would only meet at its head office in Swords; however the company yesterday agreed to meet in a neutral venue – a key union demand.

Pilots are calling for a new seniority agreement with the airline.

They also want a clear system to deal with issues including base transfers and annual leave.
