Ryanair flights: 146 cancelled on Friday due to pilot strike
Pilots in Belgium announced their intention to strike on 1 August in solidarity with Irish pilots.
Their demands of Ryanair include; to stop the threat of delocalising Dublin crew; for national legislation to be put into place; and the withdrawal of threats against crew members.
This has affected 104 flights to and from Belgium. Ryanair said in a statement: “We have received strike notice from pilot unions in Belgium and Sweden for next Friday, August 10, and have regrettably cancelled 104 to/from Belgium.
“We apologise to our customers for the disruption these unnecessary strikes will cause.”
Pilot union SPF said in a statement: “All proposals from Ryanair that have been shown to the SPF have meant restrictions on how our members are organized and represented, something that is unacceptable to a union.”
