Ryanair flight cancellations to hit UK and Ireland routes
A strike by Ryanair pilots is set to go ahead on Friday resulting in the cancellation of 24 flights between the Republic of Ireland and the UK. It is the second of three 24-hour strikes involving Ireland-based pilots directly employed by Ryanair. Ryanair said if a strike planned for next week was not called off it would cancel 16 flights to and from Ireland. The Irish Airline Pilots' Association - which is part of the Fórsa trade union - is in dispute with Ryanair over pay and conditions. Ninety-nine percent of the airline's directly-employed Republic of Ireland-based pilots voted in favour of action, but Ryanair said that they make up just 25% of its Irish flight crew. Most pilots flying for Ryanair are self-employed, which is why the airline is able to continue most flights.
